Live Results: Legislative Special Elections in Michigan, South Carolina, and Texas

This Tuesday, we'll have results for a State House special election runoff in Texas, as well as special primaries in Michigan and South Carolina.

Texas State House District 2 (Runoff)

Republicans hold an 85-64 partisan advantage in the Texas House of Representatives. Members serve two-year terms; the next elections are in November.

District 2 is located east of Dallas. Republican Bryan Slaton resigned in May of last year. Five Republicans and one Democrat were on the all-party ballot in November. Republicans Brent Money (32% of the vote) and Jill Dutton (25%) led the field. As no candidate got a majority of the vote, those two meet in Tuesday's runoff.

Polls close at 8:00 PM Eastern Time.

Michigan State House Districts 13 and 25 (Primary)

The Michigan State House is evenly split, with each party holding 54 seats. There are two vacancies.

Both opens seats were previously held by Democrats, and the party has maintained control of the chamber in advance of the elections to fill the seats. Both districts are heavily Democratic. However, if Republicans can pull off two surprise wins, they would take over the House.

The general election for both seats is April 16. Polls close at 8:00 PM Eastern Time.

District 13 is located just north of downtown Detroit. Portions of the district are in Warren. Democrat Lori Stone resigned after being elected mayor of that city in November.  

Stone won by 67% to 33% over her Republican challenger in 2022. Each party primary has three candidates on the ballot.

District 25 sits midway between the Detroit and Ann Arbor areas. Democrat Kevin Coleman resigned after being elected mayor of Westland in November.

Coleman won by a 63% to 37% margin over his Republican opponent in 2022. There are five Democrats vying to succeed him, while Josh Powell is unopposed for the GOP nomination.

South Carolina State House District 109 (Primary)

Republicans hold a large 88-35 edge in the South Carolina House of Representatives. Members serve two-year terms; the next elections are in November.

The one vacancy is in District 109, located to the northwest of Charleston. Democrat Deon Tedder resigned after winning a State Senate election last November. 

Two Democrats are on the primary ballot. No Republicans filed to run.

The general election is on April 2. Polls close at 7:00 PM Eastern Time.
