Four states-- Tennessee, Virginia, Arkansas, and California -- held special elections on March 8, 2011 to fill 5 state legislative vacancies. Four of these seats were filled in Tuesday's special election, and one proceeded to a run-off election. Three of these four seats were previously held by Republicans, and one by a Democrat. Each party retained control of its seats on Tuesday. So far, 35 of the nation's 50 state legislative special elections have been decided.
