BRIDGEPORT - Voters in three local communities are headed to the polls today for a special election.

Residents will vote to fill the seat of former state Sen, Andrew McDonald in District 27, which covers Darien and Stamford.

Another will be held for the seat vacated by Chris Caruso in the 126th House District, which covers part of Bridgeport.

Both McDonald and Caruso won re-election in November, but resigned their seats to take jobs in the administration of Gov. Dannel Malloy.
