OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin has scheduled a special election to fill the state House seat of former Rep. Scott Biggs.
Fallin said Friday that the filing period will be Nov. 13-15, the special primary election will be Jan. 9 and the special general election will be March 6. If a special primary election is not needed, the special general election will be Jan. 9.
Biggs is a Republican from Chickasha who announced his immediate resignation on Thursday from the House District 51 seat, saying only that he will work to promote the agriculture industry in Oklahoma.
