A special election will be held Tuesday, March 8, to fill the vacancy in Kentucky’s 62nd House District after Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles was officially sworn into office Monday.

The 62nd District includes Owen County, as well as part of Fayette and Scott counties.

Quarles, 32, won the statewide seat in November by a landslide, making him the youngest statewide elected official in the nation.

He succeeds James Comer of Tompkinsville, who served from Jan. 2012-Dec. 2015.
