SC Special U.S. House Election

Thanks to Richard Winger of Ballot Access News for this post.

On February 16th, South Carolina U.S. House Member Mick Mulvaney resigned to become Director of the Office of Management & Budget.

South Carolina will hold a Special Election in his 5th District to replace him, on June 20th.

The Republican Party will hold a Primary to choose its Nominee on May 2nd.

If no one gets 50%, there will be a Run-Off Primary on May 16th.

Candidates who want a Party nomination, whether the Party nominates by Primary or Convention, file by May 16th. So far four Republicans, but no Democrats, have filed.

Independent Candidates need 10,000 Signatures by April 21th.

The only Minor Party Candidate who has filed so far is Josh Putnam of the American Party.

I'm sorry I made a mistake in this blog post. The deadline for party members to file a declaration of candidacy is March 13 at noon.
