The candidates hoping to replace the vacant District 17 Mississippi Senate are set after the deadline to qualify passed Monday.
The four names on the Nov. 4 special election ballot will be Bill “Doc” Canon, Bill Gavin, Bobby Patrick and Chuck Younger. They are vying to fill the one year remaining on the late Terry Brown’s term. Brown died Sept. 4 after a battle with cancer.
If the top vote-getter doesn’t get a 50-percent-plus-one majority vote, the two candidates with the most votes will go to a runoff, which would be held Nov. 25.
