Early voting began Nov. 23 in a runoff election to decide whether Tag Green or Armin Mizani will replace Keller Mayor Pat McGrail.

Voters will be able to cast ballots in person Nov. 23-25 and Nov. 28-Dec. 4. Polls will be open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Nov. 23-25 and 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Nov. 28 and Nov. 30-Dec. 4. On Sunday, Nov. 29, they will be open from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

Keller Town Hall, located at 1100 Bear Creek Parkway, Keller, is available as a voting location, but voters may cast ballots at any early voting location in Tarrant County.

The Keller Town Hall voting location will be open 7 a.m.-7 p.m. on election day, Dec. 8.

Applications for mail-in ballots must be submitted by Nov. 25. They can be submitted by mail to Early Voting Clerk, PO Box 961011, Fort Worth, TX 76161‐0011; by fax to 817-850-2344; or by email to votebymail@tarrantcounty.com. The original copies of applications submitted by fax or email must also be mailed.


To be eligible to vote by mail, voters must meet at least one of four requirements: being away from their county on election day and during early voting; being sick or disabled; being 65 years of age or older on election day; or being confined in jail but eligible to vote, according to the state.

Tarrant County ranked in the top 50 counties for early voter turnout in Texas during the Nov. 3 general election, surpassing its 2016 turnout. No candidate in the Keller mayoral race received more than 50% of the vote, sending Green and Mizani, the two candidates with the most votes, to the runoff election. Candidate Mark Mathews did not progress to the runoff election.

Community Impact published Q&As with the mayoral candidates in September. For more information on voting, visit the Tarrant County Elections website.
