Technically, this is what we in the political business call an “off year,” due to a lack of scheduled general elections. But there are a bunch of Special Elections that are about to happen, to fill vacancies. We know these things, so here they are:
The election to fill Representative Mark Hamilton’s seat, District 24, there will be a Special Election on Tuesday, June 16.
Special Elections to fill the late Representative Harry Geisinger’s seat, District 48, former Representative Mike Jacobs’ seat, District 80, former Representative Larry O’Neal’s seat District 146, and former Representative Jay Roberts’ seat, District 155, will all be on Tuesday, July 14.
If you live in any of those districts, brace yourself for a busy Summer.
UPDATE: There’s another in DeKalb County’s District 5 as well. “The DeKalb Board of Registration and Elections announces that a Special Election to fill the vacancy in Commission District 5 as the result of the resignation of Lee May will be held on Tuesday, June 16, 2015.” If I’ve left any out, please let me know in the comments.
