On this Page: U.S. Senate (both seats), U.S. Representative (4 congressional districts)
Results Expected: After 8:00 PM Eastern Time
NOTE: The results of the November 27th runoff between Cindy Hyde-Smith and Mike Espy appear below. See an overview of that race, along with the vote totals from the November 6th special election.
Both seats have an election this year. In the regularly scheduled one, incumbent Sen. Roger Wicker (R) is heavily favored to win a 3rd term. There is also a special election to complete the term of former Sen. Thad Cochran, who resigned in April. (His term ends in January, 2021; there will be a regular election in 2020).
Special elections in Mississippi are non-partisan. Therefore, the November 6th ballot will not show a party by a candidate's name. We do show the associated parties in our results data. There are two Republicans running, including appointed incumbent Cindy Hyde-Smith. The third candidate is Democrat Mike Espy. The vote may be split such that no candidate receives a majority. Should that happen, the top two will advance to a runoff on November 27th.
