Special Elections Scheduled for Feb. 28. Get ready to mobilize:
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced Friday that special elections will occur at the end of February for three seats vacated by lawmakers just ahead of the start of the legislative session.
Elections will be held Feb. 28 for the 2nd Senate District, which includes portions of Bloomfield, Hartford, and Windsor; and the 32nd Senate District, which includes Bethlehem, Bridgewater, Oxford, Roxbury, Southbury, Washington, Watertown, Woodbury and portions of Middlebury and Seymour. An election will occur on the same day for the 115 House District, which includes portions of West Haven.
The elections have the potential to shift the balance of power in either chamber, in particular the Senate, which is currently tied 17-17.
