Republican Incumbent Michael Guest and Michael Cassidy are battling for Mississippi’s 3rd Congressional District seat in the House of Congress, while Republicans Brian Flowers and Ronald Eller are in a runoff for the state’s 2nd Congressional District.
“We had a runoff because there was a primary election on June 7. The two people with the highest amount of votes, neither got the 50 plus 1%. So, then you have a runoff,” said District 5 Election Commissioner Shirley Varnado.
Polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. for the June 28 runoff.
