JACKSON, Miss. - Polls are closed for runoff elections in Mississippi.

Voters in the northern part of the state were deciding a Supreme Court race between John Brady of Columbus and Bobby Chamberlin of Hernando.

The Court of Appeals runoff in an east-central district is between challenger Ed Hannan and incumbent Jack Wilson. Both live in Madison.

Runoffs were being held for two Mississippi House seats. One is in Jones County. The other is in Lamar and Pearl River counties.

Donnie Scoggin has been elected to the Mississippi House.

He defeated Ron Swindall on Tuesday in a runoff in District 89 in Jones County. Scoggin will serve the final three years of a four-year term started by Republican Rep. Bobby Shows of Ellisville, who retired.

Candidates run without party labels in special elections in Mississippi.
