Special election "talk of town" hours before polls open in Temple

TEMPLE, TX (KXXV) -

Temple voters are set to decide a new council member in a special election Saturday and one resident says it's the talk of the town. 

The polls open at 7 a.m. Saturday for the special election to decide the new District 2 council member. The city was forced to put on the special election after Judy Morales declined the seat when she ran unopposed in May. Morales pleaded no contest in late March to destroying public documents. She stepped down from her seat in April but won the seat again in May. 

Weeks after she declined the seat, Morales filed to run for the same seat in the special election. Days later three other people filed to run in the election as well. Here's a look at the ballot: Judy Morales, Cynthia Arriaga, Gregory Wise and James Zeptner. 

75 votes have already been cast in early voting. The only polling location is at the Wilson Recreation Center at 2205 Curtis B. Elliot Drive. The city says the election is costing between $8,000-$10,000.
