(10:35 p.m. Saturday): Troy Hill and Vic Villarreal will move ahead and face each other in a runoff to replace outgoing Mayor Chris Fielder in Leander.

Three women running for city council seats in Leander all won on Saturday. Michelle Stephenson (Place 2), Christine Sederquist (Place 4) and Marci Cannon (Place 6) all secured victories after all 27 precincts reported in Saturday night.  Cannon's victory was the closest, garnering 51 percent of the vote in a three-way race against Marshall Hines (33 percent) and Derek Levisay (17 percent). 

Corbin Van Arsdale won the mayoral race in Cedar Park, and the city will see three new members of city council sworn in soon. Mel Kirkland, Michael Guevara and Dorian Chavez all won their races for city council in the city, while all 22 of Cedar Park's ballot propositions passed. 

In Leander, seven of the eight ballot measures passed. Proposition C, which would have extended the term for the city auditor from three years to five years, was the only measure to fail. 

(9:50 p.m. Saturday): Leander mayoral candidates Troy Hill and Vic Villarreal appear headed for a runoff. With 26 of 27 precincts reporting, Hill has amassed 43 percent of the vote. Villarreal has 32 percent and Adam Benefield has 26 percent. If Hill is unable to reach 50 percent, the two top vote-getters will face each other in a runoff. 

Corbin Van Arsdale has a commanding lead over Bob Cornelius in the Cedar Park mayoral race, while three women vying for the same number of council seats in Leander all lead their opponents.
