2019 Election Update
As of January 1, 2019, Republicans controlled the Mississippi State House 74-48. At the filing deadline, one Democrat switched their affiliation from Democrat to Republican (Nick Bain in HD 2), and two Democrats switched their party affiliation to Independent (Steve Holland in HD 16 and Angela Cockerham in HD 96).
In the 2019 election, Democrats flipped two seats (HD 40 and HD 64) and won back HD 16. Democrats lost HD 12 and HD 122. Republicans now control the Mississippi State House 75-46 with one Independent (who we mostly expect to vote with the GOP).
Despite the net loss in seats, one EveryDistrict-endorsed candidate flipped a district: Shanda Yates (HD 64).

Understanding the Map
EveryDistrict’s Legislative District Index (LDI) is the gold standard of state legislative competitiveness. Our LDI ranks state legislative districts on a scale from 100 to -100, using statewide elections data. Districts with a score of 100 would vote for statewide Democratic candidates by an average of 100 points (with the Democratic candidate receiving 100% of the vote); districts with a score of -100 would vote for statewide Republican candidates by an average of 100 points (with the Republican candidate receiving 100% of the vote). For a more realistic example, a district with a score of 10 would vote for statewide Democratic candidates by an average of 10 points (meaning we would expect the Democratic state legislative candidate to win with 55% of the vote compared to the Republican winning 45% of the vote).
After the 2018 election, EveryDistrict reviewed and enhanced our LDI system, improving the accuracy of the metric with new methodologies and the most recent electoral data.
