The Senate District 35 special election is being held to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of Rod Wright.
In a special primary, if one candidate receives a majority of the votes cast (50 percent plus one), no additional election is necessary. If no candidate receives a majority of the votes, a runoff election will be held on February 10, with a ballot featuring the two candidates who received the most votes in the primary, regardless of party preference.
