HARTFORD, Conn.—Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has set a special election for the General Assembly seat vacated by New Britain's newly elected mayor.

Voters will go to the polls on Tuesday, Jan. 10 in the 24th District, which includes parts of New Britain and Newington.

Former state Rep. Timothy O'Brien left that office Nov. 15, when he was sworn in as mayor. O'Brien, a Democrat, had represented the legislative district since 2003. He was elected mayor Nov. 8.

State law requires the governor to issue a Writ of Special Election. A special election must be then held within 46 days.
