Live Results: Mississippi State Senate Special Election Runoff

There are 52 seats in the Mississippi State Senate. The chamber is overwhelmingly Republican; that party holds 36 seats, Democrats 15.

District 32 includes much of Meridian and points north. It reaches the Alabama border to the east. It has been vacant since Democrat Sampson Jackson retired June 30, less than two years through the current four-year term.  He had been in the Senate since 1992.

Nine candidates, including Jackson's son Keith, met in a nonpartisan special election on November 2. Keith Jackson finished third with 13%. No candidate received a majority of the vote, necessitating a runoff.

Rod Hickman (26% of the vote) and Dr. Minh Duong (22%) advanced and face off Tuesday to determine the winner of the seat. Sampson Jackson has endorsed Hickman.

Polls close at 8:00 PM Eastern Time.
