Governor Issues Writ of Special Election

On the last day allowed by Connecticut General Statutes, the Governor today issued a Writ of Special Election, announcing a total of three seats which need to be filled in the General Assembly, two in the Senate and one in the House of Representatives.

The announcement came on the 10th day, including Wednesday, January 4th, 2017, when Senators Rob Kane and Eric Coleman resigned in tandem with one another.

Statutes also define parameters for when the Special Election will be held and that date is now set for Tuesday, February 28, 2017. Voters in towns impacted by these elections will be receiving more detailed updates at the local level in the coming weeks and days.
