LACKAWANNA COUNTY, Pa. — A special election to fill a vacant State House seat in Lackawanna County will take place on Nov. 2, 2021, the day of Pennsylvania's general election.

The announcement came Wednesday morning from the Office of the Speaker of the House in Harrisburg.

The election will fill the vacant seat in the 113th Legislative District in Lackawanna County that was vacated when Rep. Marty Flynn (D-Lackawanna) was elected to the Pennsylvania Senate.

Candidates for the office will be selected by a process designated by their respective political parties, and the winner of the special election will take office after the results are confirmed.

Flynn won a special election to the Senate after Sen. John Blake resigned earlier this year. He took the oath of office in the Pennsylvania Senate Wednesday morning.
