Special Elections Tracker

With so many special elections lately, I figured now would be a good time to keep track of them all in one place. I will update the table as I find more information, here and on my website.

Here’s the link to the table on Google Sheets.

    Thanks! FYI – the Election Calendar above has all the dates for the ones I know about. For candidates I find ballotpedia a good resource. https://ballotpedia.org/State_legislative_special_elections,_2017


    R, MD-7. Process is more important than outcome.
