Speaker Announces Special Election for 133rd Legislative District
9/18/2017
HARRISBURG – Speaker of the House Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny County) today ordered a special election be held on Tuesday, Dec. 5, to fill the vacant seat in the 133rd Legislative District in Lehigh County.

Turzai filed the writ of election, the formal document setting the date of a special election, with the Department of State. A copy of the writ is also being filed with the Lehigh County Board of Elections.

The vacancy was created by the Sept. 8 death Rep. Daniel McNeill (D-Lehigh).

Candidates for the office will be selected by a process designated by their respective political parties, and the winner of the special election will take office after the results are certified.

The district office will remain open under supervision of the House to assist constituents with issues or problems, and continue constituent inquiries already in progress. The office will remain until a new representative takes office and decides how to manage the district.

The 133rd Legislative District office is located at 1080 Schadt Ave. in Whitehall and may be reached at (610) 266-1273.
