The House of Representatives voted to remove New York Republican Rep. George Santos from his post on Friday due to federal indictment charges. 

Here's what happens to Santos's seat now:

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul announced a special election on Friday, just hours after she wrote a post on X claiming she was "prepared to undertake the solemn responsibility of filling the vacancy in New York’s 3rd District," leading people to believe she would pick someone herself instead holding an election.

In her later statement, Hochul clarified she was "prepared to undertake the solemn responsibility of filling the vacancy in New York’s 3rd District by scheduling a special election. The people of Long Island and Queens deserve nothing less."

Hochul had 10 days from the time of Santos's expulsion to call a special election:snip:
