On Tuesday, Connecticut holds a State House special election. There's also a GOP primary runoff in Alabama for an open State House seat. Polls in both close at 8:00 PM ET.
State House Special General Election
Connecticut District 145
There are 151 State House districts in Connecticut. Currently, the chamber has 96 Democrats and 54 Republicans. The next regularly scheduled election is in 2022. Earlier this month, a vacancy in District 112 was won by Republican Tony Scott. Scott was seated on April 19.
The District 145 vacancy was created by the resignation of Democrat Patricia Miller on March 8. Miller had won a special election for an open State Senate seat the prior week.
The major party candidates are Democrat Corey Paris and Republican J.D. Ospina.
State House Special Primary Election Runoff
Alabama District 73 (GOP)
Leigh Hulsey and Kenneth Paschal advanced by being the top two finishers in the March 30 primary. Neither received the majority needed to avoid the runoff. The winner will meet Democrat Sheridan Black in the July 13 special general election.
