HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Special elections have now been set for three vacant seats in the Connecticut House of Representatives.

Democratic Gov. Ned Lamont set aside Jan. 21 for a special election in the 151st Assembly District, which consists of portions of Greenwich.

The seat was held by former Republican state Rep. Fred Camillo, who recently resigned after being elected first selectman of Greenwich.

Lamont had already ordered a special election on Jan. 14 for two other vacant House seats. The 48th Assembly District was represented by the late Democratic Rep. Linda Orange, who announced her resignation shortly before her death on Nov. 20.


The district includes Colchester, Lebanon, Mansfield and Windham.

A special election will also be held to fill the 132nd Assembly District, which includes Fairfield. The seat was recently vacated by former Republican Rep. Brenda Kupchick after she won the town’s mayoral election.
