Runoffs will decide one seat on the Mississippi Supreme Court, one on the state Court of Appeals and two in the state House of Representatives. There are also some scattered local runoff elections.

Polls are open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday. Voters must show a driver's license or other government-issued photo identification.

Judicial candidates run without party labels. Because the legislative races are special elections, those candidates also run without party affiliation.

The Supreme Court runoff in the northern district is between John Brady of Columbus, who's an attorney in private practice; and Bobby Chamberlin of Hernando, who's a circuit judge.

The Court of Appeals runoff in an east-central district is between challenger Ed Hannan and incumbent Jack Wilson. Both live in Madison.

One legislative runoff is in Jones County. The other is in Lamar and Pearl River counties.

Ron Swindall faces Donnie Scoggin in District 89. Greg Holcomb opposes John Corley in District 106.

In Newton County, two candidates are in a runoff for Justice Court Judge District 1. Angel Measell and Scott Round are vying for the seat vacated by the death of Jan Addy.
