The special election for State Senator for the 2nd Plymouth and Bristol District was caused by the untimely death of Senator Thomas P. Kennedy, a Democrat from Brockton, who died June 28 of this year.
In Plympton, voting will take place at the Town House, 5 Palmer Rd., Rte. 58. In Halifax, voting takes place in the All Purpose Room of the Halifax Elementary School, 470 Plymouth St., Rte, 106.
The only candidate on the Republican ballot is Geoff Diehl, State Representative serving Whitman, Abington and East Bridgewater in the Seventh Plymouth District.
The Democratic ballot will see two candidates, Representative Michael D. Brady of the Ninth Plymouth District in Brockton, who will square off against businessman Joseph Lynch, also of Brockton.
Neither town clerk expects much of a turnout for this special primary election.
