Haslam Sets Election Dates for Former DeBerry Seat in House District 91

Primaries to be held October 8; general election to follow on November 21.

In a writ of election issued on Tuesday Governor Haslam set October 8 as the date for party-primary elections to fill the vacancy in state House District 91 created by the death last month of longtime incumbent Lois DeBerry, who served the area for 40 years.

The writ further established Thursday, November 21 as the date of a general election for that office.

Filing deadline for the office will be August 29, and the winner of the general election will serve until the regular election cycle for the seat in November 2014.

A large field of candidates is to be expected, at least for the Democratic primary in an inner-city district that normally goes heavily Democratic.
