In Meghalaya's Selsella assembly constituency, the by-election was necessitated by the death of sitting Congress legislator Clement Marak on October 8, 2018.

Marak's widow June Eliana R. Marak is contesting the bypoll on the Congress ticket against the ruling National People's Party Ferlin C.A. Sangma, the United Democratic Party's Sayeedullah Nongrum and the Bharatiya Janata Party's Adorsho Sangma.

In Nagaland's Aonglenden assembly constituency, the bypoll was necessitated due to death of NDPP legislator Imtikumzuk in September 2018. Opposition Naga People's Front (NPF) Toshipokba Longkumer and National People's Party (NPP) Tinujungshi Longkumer withdrew their nomination papers for contesting days before the polls.

Both had declared their support to ruling Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party's (NDPP) nominee Sharingain Longkumer.

In Mizoram's Aizawl West - I, the by-election was called by the State Election Commission after Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM) leader Lalduhawma vacated the seat. In the assembly polls held in November-December last year, Lalduhawma had won two seats. He decided to retain the  Serchip assembly seat while withdrawing his MLA status from Aizawl West - I.
