Two Republicans, two Democrats and one independent candidate are vying for the seat recently vacated by Rep. Tim Kleinschmidt, R-Lexington.
Republican candidates include John Cyrier, who works as a general contractor, and Brent Golemon, an entrepreneur.
Ty McDonald, a pastor, and Shelley Cartier, a Realtor, are the Democratic candidates running for the seat.
Linda Curtis, a community organizer, is running as the independent candidate.
In November Kleinschmidt won re-election with 64 percent of the vote, but he has since decided to take a position as the general counsel for the Texas Department of Agriculture.
Early voting will begin Dec. 29.
