Rhode Island Secretary of State Ralph Mollis said Wednesday that he's set the dates for a special election to fill the General Assembly seat of former State Rep. Lisa Baldelli-Hunt.

Baldelli-Hunt resigned the seat Tuesday, the same day she was sworn in as mayor of Woonsocket. The District 49 seat represents Woonsocket.

A primary, if necessary, is scheduled for Jan. 21. The special election will be held Feb. 25.

Anyone interested in running must file a formal declaration of candidacy with the Woonsocket Board of Canvassers starting Dec. 12 and ending at 4 p.m. Dec. 13.
