Five candidates seek Gardner's vacant House seat

PANOLA COUNTY and TATE COUNTY — Five candidates were running in a special election today in House District 11 to complete the term of the late state Rep. Joe C. Gardner.

Gardner, a Democrat from Batesville, died in February. He had been a member of the Mississippi House since 2007. He represented District 11, which includes parts of Panola and Tate counties.

Polls opened at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.

If no candidate receives a majority of votes cast in the special election, a runoff election will be held April 16.

The candidates are Marshall Bartlett, Anderson Boothe, Michael Cathey, Lataisha M. Jackson and Ederic L. Kerney.
