The governor has set the special election timeline to fill the House District 11 seat, vacated by Jeremy Oden upon accepting an appointment to the state public service commission:
- The special primary election will be held February 12, 2013, if needed, otherwise the special general election will be held on that date;
- The runoff following the primary, if needed, or the special general election if no runoff is needed following a primary, will be held March 26, 2013; and
- The special general election will be held on May 7, 2013 if both a primary and runoff are required.
