In District One, two candidates are challenging Lubbock City Councilman Victor Hernandez.

Hernandez has held the seat since 2010, and previously served on the council from 1993 to 2004.

Frank Gutierrez, who is retired, and Lana Bear Moore, who works at home, are both running against Hernandez.

All of the candidates have spent Saturday working to get people out to vote, and trying to get the support to win.

The candidates said they were pleased with the turnout so far and wanted to remind people of the importance of voting.

Candidates said the main issue for voters was LP&L, and both Gutierrez and Moore say if people want change, they need to vote.

"We've got to make a change on that city council," Gutierrez said. "We've got three massive races going on, and I don't want to say that the current city council hasn't done their job, but they haven't done their job."

"Folks are distressed because of the effect that it's had on their family budgets," Moore said, "and they are concerned because it doesn't change, and that's one of the promises that I've made in our platform."

KCBD also contacted current District 1 Councilman Victor Hernandez. He was also working on getting voters to come in, and could not interview.

Every candidate is optimistic about their chances, and will be watching the results closely after the polls close Saturday night.
