ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia’s governor is setting June election dates to replace two Republican state House members who have resigned.

Greg Morris of Vidalia resigned from District 156, which covers all of Montgomery and Toombs counties and parts of Appling and Jefferson Davis counties after fellow lawmakers elected him to the state Transportation Board.

Bert Reeves of Marietta resigned from House District 34, which covers parts of central and northern Cobb County, to go to work for Georgia Tech.

Candidates from all parties will run together on the same ballot on June 15. If no one wins a majority, a runoff will be held on July 13. Qualifying will be held Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
