NASHVILLE (AP) — A special primary and general election have been scheduled to select a successor for the late Rep. Lois DeBerry.

The Memphis Democrat died last month after a nearly five-year bout with pancreatic cancer. She had represented District 91 since 1972.

Gov. Bill Haslam issued a writ of election this week that calls for a special primary election in the Memphis district for Oct. 8 and a special general election for Nov. 21.

Candidates have until noon Aug. 29 to file qualifying petitions with the Shelby County Election Commission.

The winner on Nov. 21 will serve the remainder of DeBerry's term until the regular legislative elections in November 2014.
