Deal calls special election for Huckaby seat

April 29, 2011

Gov. Nathan Deal today called a June 21 special election for House District 113, which includes all of Oconee County and portions of Oglethorpe, Clarke and Morgan counties.

The vacancy arose upon the resignation of Hank Huckaby, whom the Board of Regents selected to serve as chancellor of the University System of Georgia. Huckaby served as one of the governor’s three floor leaders in the House.

Jurisdiction for the election now moves to Secretary of State Brian Kemp.
