Gov. Phil Bryant has set Nov. 6, 2018, as the special election date for House District 85.

The seat became vacant Aug. 31 when former Rep. America “Chuck” Middleton resigned from the Mississippi House of Representatives.

The qualifying deadline is September 17.

If no candidate receives a majority of votes on Nov. 6, a runoff will be held on Nov. 27.

District 85 encompasses parts of Claiborne, Franklin, Jefferson and Warren counties.
