Governor Tate Reeves has announced a special election date to fill the vacancy in House District 37, following the passing of Representative Lynn Wright.
I’ve set a special election on November 8, 2022, to fill the vacancy in House District 37.
The vacancy was created due to the tragic passing of Rep. Wright. I continue to pray for his family & friends & know that whoever is elected in this district will have large shoes to fill! pic.twitter.com/oXXfll18nK

Wright, who was elected in 2020, passed away earlier this month. Prior to his political career, Wright was a longtime Lowndes County Schools Superintendent and football coach.
The general election for Mississippi’s four midterm congressional races will also be held on November 8.
