Louisiana House District 35 special elections cancelled, Rep Brett Geymann to be Sworn In
The Louisiana February 6 special primary election and March 20 special general election for House District 35 are canceled.
A special primary election was originally scheduled for February 6 followed by a special general election on March 20 to fill the vacancy in House District 35.
Stephen Dwight, who previously held the seat, resigned December 1, 2020, following his November election as Calcasieu Parish District Attorney.
Brett Geymann, a former state representative, was the only one to file for the House District 35 seat and qualify before the filing deadline of January 8.
A Republican, Geymann was the District 35 state representative from 2004 until he was term-limited in 2016. Louisiana does not have lifetime term limits, allowing Geymann to run again for the House seat.
Geymann will be sworn in on January 19.
