There will be two special elections held on Tuesday, August 16. The first, for State House District 24, is a Republican Primary to determine who will face Democrat Michelle Shain in a Special General Election on October 4. This seat opened when David Wilkins (R) was appointed by President Bush (R) to become the U.S. Ambassador to Canada.
The second, for State House District 121, pits Jennifer Bailey (R) against Kenneth Hodges (D) in a Special General Election to fill the seat left open by the death of Representative Walter Lloyd (D), who died in April.
