Voters will decide today who will replace Dan Corbin as the next mayor of Killeen, and new leaders in other area cities and school districts also will be chosen.

In what could be a record turnout for a Killeen municipal election, residents will select Scott Cosper, Richard “Dick” Young or Harold “Hal” Butchart as Killeen’s mayor for the next two years.
