Jackson won election in the special election for Mississippi House of Representatives District 11. The seat was vacant following Joe Gardner's death on February 4. Jackson faced Marshall Bartlett, Anderson Boothe and Ederic L. Kerney in the special election, which took place on March 26, 2013. As no candidate took more than 50 percent of the vote, the top two vote-getters - Anderson Boothe and Lataisha M. Jackson - met in a runoff election on April 16, which Jackson won. Special elections in Mississippi are non-partisan.[1][2][3][4][5]
