Voters in metro Atlanta’s 6th Congressional District will cast ballots April 18 – and probably again in a June runoff – to choose a replacement for Republican Tom Price, who joined the Trump Administration in early February as secretary of health and human services.

Gov. Nathan Deal ordered the special election Feb. 10, the day Price was confirmed by the U.S. Senate. The qualifying period for candidates was Feb. 13-15. Eighteen candidates qualified, all but assuring a runoff between the top two vote-getters.

Here are key dates in the special election

Monday, March 20: Deadline for voter registration

Tuesday, April 18: Special election 

Tuesday, June 20: Runoff election
