Voters will choose late Senator Jack Hill's replacement June 9

Voters in Georgia Senate District 4 will choose a successor to the late Sen. Jack Hill on June 9, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced Monday.

Hill, R-Reidsville, died suddenly last Monday at the age of 75. He was elected to the Senate in 1990 as a Democrat but switched to the Republican Party following the 2002 elections.

Hill has served since 2003 as chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, which oversees the annual drafting of the state budget.

Qualifying for the Senate seat began Monday and will continue until 1 p.m. Wednesday at the secretary of state’s office on the eighth floor of the James. H. “Sloppy” Floyd Building, 2 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, in downtown Atlanta. The qualifying fee is $400.

If no candidate receives a majority of the vote during the June 9 special election, a runoff would take place on Aug. 11.

The voter registration deadline for the special election is May 11.

The sprawling Senate District 4 includes portions of Bulloch, Candler, Effingham, Evans and Tattnall counties.
