More than 300 residents voted in the first four days of early voting in Copperas Cove in a council seat runoff election.
Marc Payne and John Hull will face off in a runoff election Dec. 12, as neither candidate received a majority of the votes during the Nov. 7 general election.
Hull received 40.8 percent of the vote while Payne earned 40.2 percent in November for the City of Copperas Cove Council seat Place 6.
A third candidate, Danny Palmer, received 19 percent of the vote last month. Election ordinances require a candidate receive more than 50 percent of the votes to be elected.

Early voting will continue Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Second Street location.
