HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania: Staggered election schedules mean vacancies. For example, state legislative incumbents can run for a different office mid way through their term, or run side-by-side campaigns. When they win election to the new office, as many did in the general election last November, states must make arrangements to fill their empty seats.[1]

In Pennsylvania, two state legislators successfully sought new office in 2012, and special elections were held on May 21, 2013 to determine their replacements.[2][3]
