Special Election Set to Fill Former Senator Harp’s Seat

AP

The Fifth District race has been decided.

A special election will be held on Tuesday, February 25 to fill the state Senate seat Toni Harp held before becoming mayor of New Haven.

Harp was sworn into her new office on Jan. 1 and resigned from her state Senate seat this week.

The 10th Senatorial District covers portions of New Haven and West Haven.

State law requires the governor, in the event of a vacancy, to issue a Writ of Special Election for a special election to be held 46 days after its issuance. 

Gov. Dannel Malloy filed writs with each of the town clerks of New Haven and West Haven today.
