HARTFORD, CT – Governor Ned Lamont on Friday announced that he has scheduled Tuesday, April 27, 2021 as the date to hold a special election to fill a vacancy for state representative in the 145th Assembly District of the Connecticut House of Representatives.

The seat, which consists of portions of Stamford, became vacant on March 8 following the resignation of Patricia Billie Miller, who was recently elected to serve in the State Senate.

Under state law, the governor is required to issue a writ of special election within 10 days of a vacancy in the General Assembly and a special election must be held 46 days after the writ has been issued. Governor Lamont issued the writ on Friday.
