Under state law, the governor is required to issue a Writ of Special Election within 10 days of a vacancy in the General Assembly, and a special election must be held 46 days after its issuance.

Malloy is filing the writs — one for each of the town clerks of Shelton, Stratford and Trumbull — today.

The Republicans and Democrats will meet to nominate candidates for the special election. Miller was a Republican who was in his 12th term. He lived in northern Stratford.
