Special elections to fill two legislative seats held by Minnesota lawmakers accused of sexual harassment will likely be held on Feb. 12.

Gov. Mark Dayton said Monday he planned to schedule the election for the second Monday in February. He can't call the special election until he receives a resignation letter from Democratic Sen. Dan Schoen. Republican Rep. Tony Cornish has already resigned.
