WARREN COUNTY — Five people have qualified to run in a special election to succeed Vicksburg Mayor George Flaggs Jr. in the Mississippi House of Representatives.
The election is Nov. 5. A runoff, if needed, will be Nov. 26.

Flaggs retired from his seat June 30 and was sworn in as mayor the following day.
The winner will fill the 2½ years remaining on the term.
