November special legislative elections set in Ga.

ATLANTA (AP) - Special elections for a few open legislative seats have been set for Nov. 5.

State officials say the elections will be held to fill state House Districts 100, 104 and 127 and state Senate District 14.

Candidate qualifying will be held Sept. 16-18. State House districts 100 and 104 cover parts of Gwinnett County, while House District 127 sits in Jefferson and Richmond counties.

The election for Senate District 14 will take place in portions of Bartow, Cherokee and Cobb counties.

Officials say the elections are non-partisan with no party primaries. However, each candidate's party affiliation can be listed on the ballot. Run-off elections, if needed, will be held Dec. 3.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Voters must be registered by Oct. 7.
