Area voters will elect municipal and school leaders today in Killeen, Harker Heights, Lampasas and other area cities. Polling places will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Killeen City Council: Terry Clark and Mike Lower are facing each other in the election for District 3. It is the only contested race in the city, though voters in all four Killeen districts will weigh in on 33 city charter amendments.

Killeen ISD: Two places on the Killeen Independent School District Board of Trustees are up for election. Lan Carter is challenging incumbent Shelley Wells for Place 1. John Gilmore is challenging incumbent Susan Jones for Place 2.

Harker Heights City Council: Stu McLennan, Hal Schiffman and Donald Sandlin are vying for Place 1, the only contested slot this year.

Lampasas City Council: While four seats are on the ballot, only two are contested. James Finley is challenging Mayor Jerry Grayson, and incumbent Place 1 Councilman Wesley Alexander is running against Wanda Bierschwale, a former councilwoman.
