Keller voters will decide Dec. 8 who will replace Mayor Pat McGrail: Tag Green or Armin Mizani.

The polling location at Keller Town Hall, 1100 Bear Creek Parkway, will be open 7 a.m.-7 p.m., and voters can cast their ballots at any polling location in Tarrant County. Town Hall is the only voting location in the city of Keller.

The race for the mayor of Keller is one of several Tarrant County races that was not be decided during the regular Nov. 3 election. Because no candidate received more than 50% of the vote, the two candidates with the highest number of votes were sent to a runoff.

Mizani won 47% of votes in the general election, while Green won 39%. The third candidate, Mark Mathews, did not advance to the runoff.

McGrail chose not to seek re-election after serving four terms as Keller's mayor.


The Tarrant County Elections Department reported more than 17,600 ballots had been cast as of 2 p.m. Dec. 7. Early voting began Nov. 23.

Community Impact Newspaper published Q&A's with the mayoral candidates in September. For more information on voting, visit the Tarrant County elections website.
