It will be held at 6 p.m. ET in the Pfeffenweiler Room of Jasper's City Hall located at 610 Main St.

State Rep. Mike Braun plans to resign from his seat on November 1.

The House District 74 caucus, for a seat most recently held by former State Rep. Lloyd Arnold, will take place on Monday, November 6.
