Elected U.S. senator

Augustus Octavius Bacon

The first election under the Seventeenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was a late election held June 15, 1913.[1][2] The election was late because two of the candidates were hospitalised due to illness and could not campaign as required.

Augustus Octavius Bacon was first elected by the Georgia Legislature in 1894. His most recent term had ended March 3, 1913, but the Legislature had failed to elect a successor.[citation needed] The Governor of Georgia then appointed Bacon to begin the term starting March 4, 1913.[3]

Bacon was re-elected in this late election, running unopposed.[1][3]

He would serve only until his death February 14, 1914,[1] leading to another interim appointment and eventual special election.
