Special elections to replace Trent Franks: What you need to know
Dec. 11, 2017
It’s been less than one week since the former member of the House of Representatives Trent Franks resigned from office, and the race to fill his seat is already heating up.
Gov. Doug Ducey announced the dates for the special election Monday. The primary will take place Feb. 27 and the general election will occur on April 24. However, Michele Reagan says, this is only to fill the vacant seat for the duration of the term. The general election for the congressional district is this November, with primaries in August.
