Local voters will help to pick new congressman next Tuesday

    Registered voters in the area will have the opportunity to cast their ballots in the 8th Congressional District special election next Tuesday. The election is being held to find a replacement for Republican Congresswoman Jo Ann Emerson, who resigned from office on January 22 to become President and CEO of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association. Emerson had easily won her reelection bid to the 8th District seat in November 2012 with roughly 72 percent of the votes.
