North Texas voters went to the polls Saturday to decide a handful of competitive local runoff races in three Collin County cities.

In Allen, Frisco, and Plano, all the city council seats on the May 1 ballot were contested, and five seats went to runoff elections held June 5.

In the Place 3 runoff, challenger Dave Cornette defeated incumbent Lauren Doherty with 55 percent of the vote.

In the runoff for the open Place 5 seat, Dave Shafer beat Philip Brewer, also with 55 percent.

Cornette and Shafer were both endorsed by the Collin County Republican Party, while the Collin County Democrat Party endorsed Doherty and recommended Brewer.

Angelia Pelham defeated Dr. Jennifer White in the runoff for the open Place 3 with 53 percent of the vote.
