Rather than filling up the forum with "DEMOCRATS TAKE KENTUCKY STATE SENATE SEAT!!!!!111" threads that last about two pages, how about we all congregate the various and sundry "other" elections here?

2012 special elections (see also for results)

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

There'll be another special in California, as Assemblyman Michael Duvall of the OC resigned following the surfacing of some... colorful remarks of his:

Republicans may very well grab a state house seat here in Washington... A Democrat in a very Republican district (only Democrat outside of inner Spokane in all of Eastern Washington) died so there will be a special election in November for his seat. His daughter was appointed to the seat in the mean time. She might be able to survive... We'll see.

No special election here, but there is a good chance that the Republicans will pick up a majority on both the Common Council and Bored of Education here in Norwalk. Pretty big around here since we are a normally democrat city.

Do you guys have partisan municipal offices or is just everyone knows which party everyone is?

The Delaware special election for the 37th House district is tomorrow. The candidates are Democrat Rob Robinson, a public defender, and Republican Ruth Briggs King, a realtor. The district was won by McCain 50.4 - 48.8 last year. I haven't been hearing anything about this election, so I'm curious to see how it turns out.

Just looked at the campaign finance reports... Robinson has raised $29k, King has raised $25k and given herself a $30k loan. King is banking on TV ads to win this, apparently, as she's spent $33k on WBOC.

Apparently there was a special election for the 38th Assembly district in New York during Tuesday's primary. Here are the results:

Michael Miller (D) - 2,730 (64.55%)
Donna Marie Caltabiano (R) - 1,499 (35.45%)

Here's hoping Mr. Miller's career doesn't end as ignominiously as his predecessor's:

Thanks for the post.

Now, to put things in context.

In 2008 the Democrat nominee for this seat received more than three times the number of votes that the Republican nominee received, whereas in the special election this year, the Democrat nominee did not receive quite twice as many votes as the Republican nominee.

Well, in safe Democrat districts you can get away with such losses, but, in competitive districts, such loses can be disasterous.

Indeed Carl, such a narrow victory calls for Obama's immediate resignation.

There was no Republican candidate in NY-38 in 2008. Perhaps Seminerio had the Republican line as well or something. Anyway. Really low turnout - Obama polled over 21,000 in the district and even McCain managed over 8,000. So a low turnout by-election in a safe Democratic district in Queens (yes, I think this area (if I'm remembering where it is right) might have had a GOP State Senator and City Councillor within the past decade or so, but that would have been nowt more than a hangover from the Queens of thirty years ago) with a solid Democratic % and a fairly respectable (for the district) Republican one. Meh. Tells us very little about anything, really.

By Carl's logic, the 7-point victory in the Delaware election should be DOOOOOOOM for the Republicans, since Booth won 64-36 in 2008.

John Kerry's percentage in 2002: 80.03%
John Kerry's percentage in 2008: 65.86%

Clearly this shows that 2008 was a much more Republican year than 2002, and that there is a solid Republican trend in Massachusetts.

I should also note that both Mike Bloomberg and Rudy Giuliani carried this New York district by large margins in their mayoral races.

There are a number of special elections in progress (candidates nominated) or completed but not yet certified.   Will be posting information about those certified soon.  However, when checking the certified results, I found a really interesting result fo New York's 77th Assembly district.  That is a third world district where the Democrat won 71 to 74 per cent of the vote (depending upon whether you include the second line on the ballot), but the Conservative party candidate trounced the Republican candidate (by a factor of more than five to one).
