Early Voting Starts Wednesday for DeBerry Seat

Early voting opens tomorrow in the Democratic primary for State House District 91 and runs through Oct. 3, with regular voting following on Oct. 8. The winner in the seven-way primary to fill the seat vacated by Lois DeBerry will advance to a Nov. 21 special general election and face Jim Tomasik, who is running as a Libertarian. No candidates filed in the Republican primary. The Democratic primary race shrank by one earlier this week when Dwight DeBerry, who claims he is related to the late legislator, was disqualified based on a conviction for aggravated robbery and assault in 1992. The Memphis Daily News has more on both stories.
