Special Elections Called for Two House Seats in Jackson County
Governor Parson announced earlier this week that four of the five open State House seats across the state will have special elections November 5 including two of the three open seats in Jackson County. District 22 in east Kansas City, which came open after Brandon Ellington was elected to the City Council, and District 36 in south Kansas City which was vacated by former Rep. DaRon McGee earlier this year, will now have representation for next year. The special election process requires members of the county committee select party nominees in lieu of a primary. Anyone that would like to be the Democratic nominee should contact Executive Director Geoff Gerling at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Nominating meeting dates have not be set yet but should occur in the next five weeks. Click here to see maps of these districts.
The 34th District, which is now open after the death of Rep. Rebecca Roeber, could still be called for a special election by the deadline of 60 days before the November election date.
