    A run-off election takes place when neither candidate won a majority and the state laws require it.

    A special election takes place when an office unexpectedly vacant, as in the death or resignation of the elected official.

    "Specialization" has nothing to do with either of these. ∠°)

    It breaks a tie or race that that is too close to call.
