JACKSON, Miss.- Tuesday’s election will focus on the presidential primary, but those aren’t the only names some Mississippians will see.
While you may be deciding who to vote for, Bernie or Hilary, Rubio or Trump, Mississippians in North and Central Mississippi will face an added decision on election day.
Voters in North Mississippi will have the chance to vote in the state’s first congressional ballot. Republican incumbent Trent Kelly faces political newcomer Paul Clever for the seat. The winner in Tuesday’s election will face Democrat Jacob Owen in November.
Kelly won the seat in a special election last year and the term expires every two years.
Central Mississippians in District 25 which includes parts of Madison and Hinds County will elect someone to take the place of Will Longwitz who was recently appointed as a Madison County Court Judge.
Voters will decide between Walter Michel and Bill Bilingsly.
If you are in either of these districts and able to vote these ballots could be separate from the presidential ballot you’ll see on Tuesday so make sure to ask before you leave.
