Mississippi State Legislature Elections 2019

This is your look at the 2019 Mississippi state legislature election, with races all over the state.

Mississippi is one of the old Dixieland states that voted true blue for decades from Reconstruction until the modern era. Within the last 20 years, however, the political architecture of the Magnolia State has done a 180. What used to be a reliable Democratic state is now the other way, electing Republicans at almost every level of government.

The Mississippi state legislature is dominated by Republicans, with little chance the Democrats will score an upset in 2019. Individual upsets, perhaps, but flipping either house of the legislature is out of the question. This is in spite of the fact that the Democrats are competitive in the governor’s race, looking for their first win in 20 years.

We have every State Senate and House of Representatives seat listed below with its current representative. Seats are arranged into eight regions as follows:

  • Northwest Mississippi
  • Northeast Mississippi
  • Delta
  • Capital Region
  • East Central Mississippi
  • Southwest Mississippi
  • Pine Belt
  • Gulf Coast
