A special election for Missouri's 8th congressional district was held on June 4, 2013, following the resignation of Jo Ann Emerson on January 22, 2013, to head the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.[2] The Republican and Democratic parties selected their own nominees without a primary.[3]

The deadline to request an absentee ballot for the special election was May 29, 2013.[4] A televised candidate's forum took place on May 27, 2013, at Southeast Missouri State University-River Campus; all party candidates participated while the write-in candidate did not attend.[5] In the general election on June 4, 2013, Republican Jason Smith received 67.1% of the vote, beating Democrat Steve Hodges (27.4%), Constitutional Doug Enyart (3.6%), and Libertarian Bill Slantz (1.5%).[6][1]
