Special Election

Special Election to fill the anticipated vacancies created by the resignations of State Senators Ted Gaines (SD-01) and Ricardo Lara (SD-33). Gaines is expected to resign after being elected to the Board of Equalization and Lara is expected to resign if he is elected Insurance Commissioner. Lara is currently ahead in the vote count by about 2%.

If elected in the 2018 election, Gaines and Lara will likely resign in the first days of 2019 to assume their new offices.
