Speaker Announces Special Election for 35th Legislative District
HARRISBURG – Speaker of the House Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny County) today ordered a special election be held on Tuesday, Jan. 23, to fill the vacant seat in the 35th Legislative District in Allegheny 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 Allegheny County Elections Division.

The vacancy was created by the Nov. 6 resignation of former Rep. Marc Gergely (D-Allegheny).

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.

District offices of the former member will remain open under supervision of the House to assist constituents with issues or problems, and continue constituent inquiries already in progress. The offices will remain until a new representative takes office and decides how to manage the district. The 35th Legislative District Office information follows:
