Connecticut Governor Announces Special Elections

Connecticut, elections

Gov. Ned Lamont issued writs on Friday to set February 26 as the date for special elections to fill five vacancies.

The 3rd, 5th, and 6th Senate Districts as well as the 39th and 99th House Districts became vacant earlier this week when five members of the General Assembly resigned in order to accept jobs in Lamont’s administration.

There will be no primary elections to choose the nominees.
