On January 23, the Missouri House passed HB 110 by a vote of 115-45. It says when one of the statewide state executive positions becomes vacant, there will be a special election. Under current law, these posts are filled by appointment when they are vacant. See this story. In case the Lieutenant Governor is elected to Congress in a special election this coming June, there will be a special election to fill his job in November 2014. Without this bill, the office would next be voted on in 2016.
