Votes set to fill 3 Mass. House seats


BOSTON (AP) — Special elections are being held to fill three vacancies in the Massachusetts House of Representatives.

In the 12th Suffolk district in Boston, Democrat Dan Cullinane, independent Lincoln Larmond and unenrolled candidate Edmond Romulus are vying on Tuesday for the seat formerly held by Linda Dorcena Forry, who won a special election to the state Senate in May.

In the 16th Worcester district, Republican Carol Claros and Democrat Daniel Donahue square off in Tuesday's election to replace John Fresolo, who resigned in May following a House ethics committee investigation.

And in the 6th Bristol district, Democrat Carole Fiola and Republican David Steinhof face off Tuesday for the seat formerly held by David Sullivan, who left the House earlier this year to become head of the Fall River Housing Authority.
