(WTVA) - Eleven special elections are set for Tuesday in Northeast Mississippi.

Oktibbeha County has five of them, three of which are countywide. Voters will be asked whether they are for or against county supervisors selling or leasing OCH Regional Medical Center. They also must decide who should serve as circuit clerk and chancery clerk. Some will also vote in a constable race for District 1.

Voters in parts of Clay, Lowndes and Oktibbeha counties will choose someone to serve as state representative for House District 38.

The only other countywide race is in Tishomingo County where voters must decide who should serve as the county prosecuting attorney.

Calhoun County has a District 1 supervisor race. Two election commissioner races will also be decided: District 3 in Lee County and District 1 in Prentiss County.  Tippah County has two school board races: North Tippah and South Tippah District 3.

Polls will be open Tuesday from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. If a runoff is required, it will be held November 28.
