The city of Baltimore as well as the state of Maryland and the nation are grappling with the sudden death of U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings.
The 68-year-old died Thursday from complications of long-term health problems.
But the question remains: What happens when a seated member of the U.S. Congress dies in the middle of their term?
There will be a special election. Gov. Larry Hogan has 10 days to issue a proclamation announcing a special primary election and a special general election will be held to fill the vacancy.
The special primary election is held on a Tuesday at least 65 days after the proclamation was released.
Gov. Hogan has yet to announce the special election.
