Stamford residents living in the Cove and Glenbrook neighborhoods should remember to vote Tuesday in the special election to fill the seat in House District 148 in the Connecticut General Assembly.

Five candidates are on the ballot: Republican Charles Pia Jr., Democrat Daniel Fox, independent Monique Thomas, Green Party candidate and John Mallozzi, a Democrat running as a petition candidate.

The special election is being held because Carlo Leone stepped down after defeating Bob Kolenberg in a special election in February to represent the 27th District in the state Senate. The 27th District seat was left open after Andrew McDonald resigned to take a job in the new administration of Gov. Dannel Malloy.

Four polling districts are open for Tuesday’s voting: Julia A. Stark School, Rogers International School, Stamford High School and K.T. Murphy. To find your polling place, visit the registrar’s page on Stamford’s website.
