ACTION:

Notice of filing dates for special election.

SUMMARY:

Georgia has scheduled a special election on November 7, 2000, to fill the U.S. Senate seat of the late Senator Paul Coverdell. Under Georgia law, a majority winner in a non-partisan special election is declared elected. Should no candidate achieve a majority vote, a Special Runoff Election will be held on November 28, 2000, between the top two vote-getters.

Committees participating in the Georgia special elections are required to file pre- and post-election reports. Filing dates for these reports are affected by whether one or two elections are held.
