The special election will fill the seat left vacant when former Rep. Eric Berthel won the Senate seat vacated by former Sen. Rob Kane. Kane resigned just before the current session began to take a position as GOP state auditor.
Seeking to succeed now Sen. Berthel as the state representative from the 68th district are Republican Town Councilman Joseph Polletta and Planning & Zoning Commission member Louis Esposito, a Democrat.
