    Voters in Dallas and Fort worth are preparing to elect new mayors this weekend.

    Runoff races are expected after Saturday's elections because the tight races in both Dallas and Fort Worth mean it's unlikely that a single candidate will garner more than 50 percent of the vote.

    The non-partisan elections are among several being held across Texas for mayor, some city commission and school board seats.

    Turnout in early voting, which ended on Tuesday, has been low.
