JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Two judicial races and two legislative races are being decided by runoffs in Mississippi.

Polls are open 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Tuesday. Voters must show a driver’s license or other government-issued photo identification.

The Supreme Court runoff in the northern district is between John Brady of Columbus, who’s an attorney in private practice; and Bobby Chamberlin of Hernando, who’s a circuit judge.

The Court of Appeals runoff in an east-central district is between challenger Ed Hannan and incumbent Jack Wilson. Both live in Madison.

One legislative runoff is in Jones County. The other is in Lamar and Pearl River counties.

Judicial candidates run without party labels. Because the legislative races are special elections, those candidates also run without party affiliation.
