Polls open at 7 a.m. Tuesday for Wisconsin’s 7th district special election

NORTHWEST WISCONSIN (WQOW) -- An empty seat in Congress is looking to be filled Tuesday during the special election for Wisconsin's 7th Congressional district.

Republican Senator Tom Tiffany and Democrat Tricia Zunker are vying for the seat after Republican Sean Duffy resigned in September, citing health complications with a child.

Voters across the 21-county district will be heading to the polls Tuesday after Gov. Tony Evers announced no changes would be made to the special election.

According to the Wisconsin Election Commission, as of Friday morning, clerks across the district had received nearly 111,000 absentee ballot requests.

Some polling places across the 7th congressional district will be open for in-person voting between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Tuesday. Voters are asked to take social distancing and safety precautions.

This 7th Congressional district seat will be back on the ballot for a primary in August and the winner of a two-year term will be decided in November.
