(INDIANAPOLIS) – Indiana Republican Chairman Kyle Hupfer has officially called a caucus of eligible precinct committee members to fill the upcoming vacancy in the office of House District 31. The seat is currently held by Rep. Kevin Mahan, whose resignation from the Indiana House of Representatives will be effective July 31, 2019.
The caucus will be held at 6:30 p.m. ET, on Tuesday, July 30, 2019, at Ivy Tech Community College at 261 Commerce Drive, Marion, IN 46953.
The individual selected at the July 30 caucus will fill the remainder of Rep. Mahan’s term.
