Governor Phil Bredesen has issued a writ for the special election in state Senate District 31, vacated recently by embattled incumbent Paul Stanley. Except for the general election, to be held on December 1, the election dates will coincide with those for the special Memphis mayoral election, announced Blake Fontenay, spokesperson for the Secretary of State's office.

Filing deadline for District 31 will be September 3, withdrawal deadline September 10, with the party primaries to be held on October 15, the date of the mayoral election.
