AUGUSTA — A special election will take place in March to fill a House seat left vacant after a Democrat resigned.

Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap said Friday that the special election for the District 93 seat will take place on March 10.

Elizabeth Dickerson of Rockland announced her plans to resign earlier this month because she decided to move to another state. She said that professional and personal opportunities had developed since she was re-elected in November.

Dunlap’s office said the political parties in the district will hold caucuses to nominate candidates ahead of the election. Nominations are due on Feb. 9 and write-in candidates have to be filed by Feb. 17.
