Members of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters are choosing between three candidates vying to be the powerful union's next president.
General President James Hoffa won most of the votes cast during a nomination process Thursday during the union's convention in Las Vegas. Hoffa is seeking a third five-year term.
He won more than 1,300 votes. Rivals Fred Gegare won 141 votes and Sandy Pope collected 137 votes.
More than 1,600 delegates voted in the nomination process that decided which candidates will appear on the ballot for the union's November election.
Candidates needed some 80 votes to get on the ballot.
Pope is the first woman to run for the title in the union's 108-year history.
