Governor Perdue Sets Election Date for 93rd House District

Today Governor Sonny Perdue issued a writ of election for the state House 93rd District seat, which was vacated last week when state Representative Ron Sailor resigned.

Pursuant to state law, the special election for the House post will be held on May 13th. If there is a runoff following the May 13 election, it would occur four weeks later, on June 10th.

State law also requires the 93rd House District seat to be up for election as part of the regular 2008 election cycle. Anyone wanting to run in the regular election cycle must separately qualify for the General Primary, which will be held July 15th. The qualifying period to participate in the General Primary is set for April 28th through May 2nd. The General Election will be held on November 4th.

A copy of the writ follows:
Due to the resignation of the Representative from the 93rd, a vacancy now exists in the Georgia House of Representatives.

Therefore, pursuant to Article V, Section II, Paragraph V of the Constitution and Section 21-2-544 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, a writ of election is hereby issued to the Secretary of State for a special election to be held on Tuesday, May 13, 2008, to fill the vacancy in District 93 of the Georgia House of Representatives.

This 27th day of March, 2008.

Governor Sonny Perdue
