Special Election Qualifying Deadline Today
The fast-approaching January 11 special elections have hit a key date: the qualifying deadline. Haley Barbour’s initial call set December 12 as the deadline, however that is a Sunday. That means that the actual qualifying deadline is today at 5 p.m.
The following races will be held: Northern District Transportation Commissioner, Senate District 6, House District 116.
A runoff will be held on February 1 if a candidate fails to win a majority during the first vote. Here is our current list of candidates; but we will have a comprehensive list of official candidates once they file their qualifying papers.
