HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) — Voters in a southwestern Ohio congressional district will vote twice for the replacement of former House Speaker John Boehner.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports a primary for the special election to fill the remaining six-month term for Ohio’s 8th Congressional District is scheduled for March 15.
A special election is then scheduled for June 7 to ultimately decide who will finish out Boehner’s term.
But also on March 15, voters will nominate a candidate to serve the following two-year term. The general election next November will then decide who will serve that term.
Two different candidates could theoretically be nominated: One to complete Boehner’s current term, and one to serve the new term that begins in 2017.
