Wylie voters return to the polls Saturday to cast ballots in a pair of runoff elections, one for Place 4 on the Wylie City Council and the other for Place 7 on the Collin College Board of Trustees.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. in both locations.

On the Wylie city election ballot, vying for Place 4 are incumbent Bennie Jones and challenger Candy Arrington. In the general election last month, four candidates were seeking the post, and neither Jones nor Arrington were able to get more than 50 percent of the vote to avoid a runoff.

Only 613 voters cast ballots in the May city election, with Jones receiving 227 votes and Arrington earning 157.

Polling places for the city runoff are Southfork Mobile Home Park Community Clubhouse, 216 Southfork Blvd.; and First Baptist Church Events Center, 200 N. Ballard Ave.

Seeking election to the Collin College Board of Trustees, Place 7, are Collin Kennedy of McKinney and Jim Orr of Lucas. The two were the top vote getters in a 4-candidate field last month.

To cast ballots in the Collin College election, Wylie voters must go to Murphy Municipal Complex, 217 N. Murphy Road.
