Democrat Landon Dais on his way to Bronx Assembly District 77 seat

A snowy special election day has come and gone for Bronxites, who spent Tuesday heading to the polls to fill the vacant state Assembly District 77 seat in small numbers and, according to unofficial results from the city’s Board of Elections (BOE), Democrat Landon Dais is on his way to the state governing body.

As of about 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Dais, an attorney and legal consultant, led challenger Norman McGill with 74.03% of the vote, with 97.01% of scanners reported, according to the BOE’s unofficial results. Once the results are certified, Dais will fill the seat that was vacated following the resignation of Latoya Joyner, who announced on the first day of the 2024 legislative session that she was leaving the Assembly to pursue an opportunity in the private sector.
