Special Democratic Primary Election: Congressional District 11

There are two special Democratic Primary Electiosn slated for Tuesday, October 14th. Polls are open from 6:30AM-7:30PM.

This is the seat open following the death of Stephanie Tubbs Jones.

  • There are 10 candidates according to the most recent BOE list of candidates
  • The winner of this primary will then move forward to a Special General Election for this seat to be held on November 18th.
  • This Primary Election and the Nov.18th General Election are to fill out the remainder of the current term only. (Until 1/3/2009) The election for the next term for this seat which begins in January will take place during the November 4th General Election.

At this time, there are only Democratic candidates in the Congressional District 11 Special Election. Therefore it appears the winner of the primary will be the lone name on the ballot for the Nov.18th General Election. Again, this is simply to finish the remainder of the current term which is up in January.
