Three candidates are in the running to succeed Sean Tindell, who left the Legislature in October when Governor Phil Bryant appointed him to the state Court of Appeals.
Polls are open from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Today in Senate District 49 in Harrison County on the Coast.
The candidates are Dan Q. Carr, Joel Carter, and Ron Meyers.
“I believe that particular seat is very important to the Mississippi state Coast but also to the state of Mississippi,” said Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann.
While special election ballots don’t list party affiliations, all three candidates have said they are Republicans.
