Special elections underway in 2 CT districts | News

COLCHESTER, CT (WFSB) – Special elections are underway in two Connecticut House districts.

The state’s 48th House district was left vacant following the death of Rep. Linda Orange.

Brian Smith, a Democrat, is running against Republican Mark DeCaprio.

“To be a strong voice for the 28th District, to fight for schools, to expand services for the elderly and support fire and police,” Smith said. 

DeCaprio joined with those against tolls on Sunday. Its an issue he’s hoping with resonate with voters. 

“We are losing residents every day to lower tax states and this is going to another cost to the taxpayers of Connecticut,” DeCaprio said. 

Connecticut’s 132nd district is also also up for grabs since Brenda Kupchick resigned to become Fairfield’s first selectman.

Democrat Jennifer Leeper is up against Republican Brian Farnen.

Polls opened at 6 a.m. in Lebanon, Mansfield, Windham and Fairfield. They close at 8 p.m.
