Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

SUPERIOR, WI-- Wisconsin will hold a special election on May 12th to fill Congressman Sean Duffy's seat in Wisconsin's 7th District.

But with the confusion during the April 7th primary election, many Wisconsinites are wondering if the election will still happen or if any last minuet changes will be made.

Terri Kalan, Superiors City Clerk, says preparing is not easy because there is a lot of unknowns.

"I'm not sure when the stay at home order is going to lift," Kalan said.

Despite the unkowns, at this point the city is proceeding as if the special election will happen.

Ballots for the election have already gone out as of February 26th and the city is already receiving some back in the mail.

Should stay at home orders be lifted voters will turn to the polls normally. If stay at home orders are in place precautions will be taken at the polls again.

"We will do the early curbside voting again and voting in the office," Kalan said.

For those who want to participate in the special election and dont want to show up to the polls its not to late.

"Definitely get a hold of us we can do a absentee ballot you can get one online we can get it through email they can come in the office," Kalan said.

For those voting absentee, Kalan says it is important to keep something in mind.

"With how things go down in Madison they change all the time, daily, sometimes hourly, I would recommend that those voting absentee do it early so there is no question about it."

There is word Governor Tony Evers could try to push back the election if the states 'stay at home' order is still in place, but nothing formal has been announced.

With a fast-changing government and a pandemic at the forefront of people's minds any and everything could happen come mid-May.
