There are 9 judges, elected to 8-year terms in nonpartisan elections and must face re-election if they wish to serve again. They are elected to represent 3 specific districts and are voted into office by the residents of their respective regions. Currently there are 6 judges initially appointed by Republican governors and 3 elected. Vacancies are named by the governor.
US Representatives & Senators
Senate seats (R) are up in 2024 and 2026. House seats (3R, 1D) are up in even years.
Congressional and state legislative district lines are drawn by the state legislature. Congressional district lines are approved as regular legislation and are thus subject to veto by the governor. State legislative district lines are approved as a joint resolution; as such, they are not subject to gubernatorial veto. If the legislature cannot approve a state legislative redistricting plan, a five-member commission must draw the lines. This commission comprises the chief justice of the Mississippi Supreme Court, the attorney general, the secretary of state, and the majority leaders of the Mississippi State Senate and the Mississippi House of Representatives. There are 4 congressional districts; 52 state senate and 122 state house districts
