CANTON, Miss. (AP) - A runoff will be held June 24 for Madison County chancery clerk.

Complete, but unofficial returns, from Tuesday’s special election show David Overby and Ronny Lott will be in the runoff. Irby Ford was the third candidate on the ballot.

Overby and Lott are vying to succeed Arthur Johnston. Johnston stepped down last year after being appointed as clerk of the federal court for the Southern District of Mississippi. Cynthia Parker has been the interim chancery clerk since Johnston left.

The chancery clerk is the keeper of public land records, collector of delinquent real estate taxes, clerk of the chancery court, clerk of the board of supervisors, county treasurer and county auditor.
