Three candidates are seeking the office in the election set for Tuesday, Nov. 7. Those appearing on the ballot are Barbara Moore Shackelford, George William Estell and Tena Smith Stewart.
The special election became necessary with the resignation earlier this year of commissioner Chris Lindley who resigned to run successfully for Booneville mayor.
Stewart was appointed by the Board of Supervisors to fill the position until the special election is held.
Absentee ballots may obtained at the Prentiss County Circuit Clerk’s office.
The final day for in-person absentee voting is Nov. 4. The office will be open until noon on Saturday, Oct. 28 and Saturday, Nov. 4 for absentee voting, said Circuit Clerk Mike Kelley.
