CAPE ELIZABETH, Maine — Democrat Kim Monaghan-Derrig has won a special election to fill a vacated seat in Maine’s House of Representatives.

Monaghan-Derrig edged Republican Nancy Thompson in Tuesday’s election to fill the seat of Democrat Cynthia Dill, who resigned to take a state Senate seat earlier this year.

Monaghan-Derrig had 1,340 votes to Thompson’s 1,164, according to unofficial results.

About one-third of the eligible voters turned out.

Cape Elizabeth Town Clerk Debra Lane told WMTW-TV 708 of the 2,509 ballots cast were absentee votes. printed on August 19, 2017
