Across the nation, special elections are frequently conducted to fill vacancies in state legislatures. 27 states use special elections to fill legislative vacancies. In two states, Illinois and Indiana, special elections are used in limited circumstances. As of November 2014, 34 special elections have been held and another 5 (not including runoffs) have been scheduled in 15 states. Since these elections are intended to fill unexpected vacancies, more will be scheduled as new vacancies arise.

Breakdown of 2014 special elections

The reasons for special elections were as follows:

  • 2 due to criminal prosecution/criminal issues
  • 4 due to a legislator's death
  • 4 due to the acceptance of another job
  • 5 due to the appointment to a new position
  • 3 due to retirement
  • 10 due to election to another position
  • 1 due to a legislator reaching a term limit

The partisan breakdown for vacancies is as follows:

Write-in candidate Scott Wagner (R) defeated party-nominated candidates Linda E. Small (D) and Ron Miller (R) in the special election, which took place on March 18, 2014.[1][2][3]

The seat was vacant following Mike Waugh's (R) appointment as the Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Farm Show on January 12.

A special election for the position of Pennsylvania State Senate District 28 was called for March 18. Candidates were nominated by their party rather than chosen through a primary[4]
