Milford, IA (ABC9 News) There's a special election going on in the town of Milford to replace two vacant seats, the mayor and a city council seat.

This comes after the two people that were holding those positions, stepped down back in June.

Appointees Bill Reinsbach and Rody Pederson both met the filing deadline to appear on the special election ballot.

Reinsbach was appointed to the mayor's office last month, after former Mayor Don Lamb resigned.

Council Member Rick Kilts also resigned, and businessman Rody Pederson was appointed to his seat.

Both sited it was all due to differences within the Milford City Council.

On Tuesday voters will also have the option of electing a candidate through the write-in process.

Winners of today's election will serve the city until the November 2015 election cycle.

Polling will be open until 8 p.m. at the Milford Community Building.

Tune into ABC9 news at ten tonight, as we bring you those election results.
