Upcoming State Legislature Special Elections

After our surprise victory in the special election earlier this week in Delaware, I decided to look for a place that listed all the State Legislature Special Elections. I know that these special elections at the state level normally do not generate a lot of news in national news and, unless you know about them ahead time, you don’t hear about it until after it happens and, usually, only if there is a big upset. Turns out The Hedgehog Report had a full rundown of all the State Legislature Special Elections. To summarize, here are the upcoming special elections at the state level:

Kentucky * Senate District 18 (August 25, 2009)
Louisiana * Senate District 20 - (Runoff August 29, 2009)
Iowa * House District 90 (September 1, 2009)
Alabama * House District 65 (Primary - September 15, 2009)
New York * Assembly District 38 - (September 15, 2009)
Pennsylvania * Senate District 24 - (September 29, 2009)
Oklahoma * House District 55 - (October 13, 2009)
Tennessee * House District 62 - (October 13, 2009)
Tennessee * Senate District 31 - (October 15, 2009)
Washington * House District 16 - (November 3, 2009)
Washington * House District 9 - (November 3, 2009)
Washington * House District 15 - (November 3, 2009)
Michigan * Senate District 19 - (November 3, 2009)
Georgia * House District 58 - (November 3, 2009)
Georgia * House District 129 - (November 3, 2009)
Georgia * House District 141 - (November 3, 2009)


Of course, while these may not get the news Federal races get, these elections will help shift votes when it comes to redistricting in the future.
