 BATH, Maine (AP) - Residents of Maine Senate District 19 are deciding who'll fill a seat left vacant by Democratic Sen. Seth Goodall's decision to lead the Small Business Administration in New England.

 Voters in the district that covers Sagadahoc County and the town of Dresden have three candidates from which to choose: Republican Paula Benoit of Phippsburg, Democrat Eloise Vitelli of Arrowsic and Green Independent Daniel Stromgren of Topsham.

 There are slightly more registered Republicans than Democrats in the district.

 For Democrats, loss of the seat would give them the slimmest possible majority in the Senate. Republicans, meanwhile, hope to generate some momentum in advance of the 2014 gubernatorial race.
