U.S. Representative before election

Louise Slaughter

Elected U.S. Representative

Joseph Morelle

A special election for New York's 25th congressional district was held following the death of U.S. Representative Louise Slaughter. Democrat Joseph Morelle defeated Republican Jim Maxwell on November 6, 2018.


Incumbent Representative Louise Slaughter died at the age of 88 on March 16, 2018, after suffering a concussion earlier in the month.[1]

Following precedent set in 2010, concurrent elections were held in November, one to fill the remainder of Slaughter's term, and the other to fill the seat for the next term. The district was left without Congressional representation until then.[2]

Nominees for special elections are selected by the parties in the counties that comprise the congressional district. There are no primaries. The filing deadline for party nominations was August 30, 2018, and for independent petitions was September 4, 2018.[3]
