On the ballot this year will be Jefferson Davis County District 5 School Board Post, 15th Judicial Circuit Court Judge,  13th Judicial Chancery Court Judge, U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives and one state ballot measure.

The ballot will also include a special election for the offices of Jefferson Davis County Tax Assessor and Jefferson Davis County School Superintendent.

Kelley Ross-Brown is currently the Interim Tax Assessor as appointed by the Board of Supervisors.

Former School Superintendent Ike Haynes took a position in Canton, MS, leaving his position open.

The school board appointed John Daley as Interim Superintendent until the election.
