Remember, don’t vote Tuesday; it was rescheduled to June

Published 10:28 am Monday, March 30, 2020

As a reminder, the runoff election for Congressional District 2, Republican Party, once scheduled for Tuesday, has been postponed by Gov. Tate Reeves due to concerns over the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

In his order two weeks ago, the runoff election, featuring Republican candidates Thomas Carey and Brian Flowers, will be held Tuesday, June 23.

Still, that date is subject to change, if necessary.

The winner of that runoff will be the Republican nominee and will face incumbent U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson in November’s general election.

Also, if you voted on March 10 using a Democratic Party ballot, you cannot cross over to the Republican Party ballot for this runoff election.

If you did not vote on March 10, you can vote in the Republican Primary runoff along with those who did cast a Republican Party ballot.

All Warren County voting precincts will be open for that runoff election, when held in June.
