Special Elections Today

What with the caucuses and Blogger being down seemingly every time I had something interesting to post, I completely forgot that there are three special elections happening today. In the 1st Bristol District (Foxboro, Mansfield, Norton), Democrat Claire Naughton is facing off against Republican Ginny Coppola, widow of Representative Michael J. Coppola, who held the seat until his passing last year. In the 2nd Worcester District (Gardner, Ashby, Ashburnham, Royalston, Winchendon) Republican Johnathan Dennehy of Ashburnham is running against Democrat Robert Rice of Gardner, and write-in candidate Dennis Venuto. Lastly, in the 27th Middlesex District (Somerville), Denise Provost is all but assured of winning an uncontested election, having won the January primary against Elizabeth Moroney.

If you don't know your state Rep district, you can always find it at WhereDoIVoteMA.com. What does it look like out there?
