DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Early voting starts Monday in the runoff election to replace former Dallas City Councilman Dwaine Caraway.

Caraway resigned in August when he pleaded guilty to corruption charges, admitting he had taken bribes from people bidding for contracts with the former school bus agency, Dallas County Schools.​

Caraway was the councilman for District 4, stretching across parts of Oak Cliff and east to I-45.

A total of 13 people ran to replace him earlier this month. No one earned 50 percent, so the race went to a runoff.

Former Dallas City Councilwoman Carolyn King Arnold finished first with 25.8 percent of the vote. Activist Keyaira Saunders finished second with 17.1 percent. Arnold and Saunders will face each other in the runoff.

Early voting starts Monday and runs through Friday, December 7. Election day is Tuesday, December 11
