ST. PAUL -- Gov. Mark Dayton plans to announce on Wednesday when an election will be held to replace Sen. Gary Kubly, who died Friday.

Dayton's office said the announcement will come after Kubly's funeral in Granite Falls.

The secretary of state's office reports that the election must be within 35 days. Besides the main election date, Dayton must plan for a primary election if needed.

Once Dayton issues a writ for an election, candidates may file for office in the auditor's office of the county where they live or the secretary of state's office.
