Burris to serve part of Senate session

November 9, 2010

Senator Roland Burris will still hold the office.

The Illinois State Board of Elections won't certify Kirk's special election until November 23. After that, both the governor and secretary of state have to approve.

In the interim, Burris, who was appointed by ousted governor Rod Blagojevich, will serve through the month.

Kirk will likely be sworn in December 3.
