Yesterday, Governor Tony Evers ordered a special election to fill the 7th Congressional District vacancy created by the resignation of U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wis).
The election will occur on Monday, January 27, 2020. A primary, if required, will occur on Monday, December 30, 2019.
State law dictates when the governor can order a special election. Once a congressional seat becomes vacant, the governor can order a special election.
