Governor Tony Evers has released the dates for the special elections to fill the seat left open by the resignation of 7th District U.S. Congressmember Sean Duffy.
Duffy resigned last month to tend for one of his children.
Evers says nomination papers for the federal seat will be due on December 2.
The special primary will occur on the same day as the spring primary, February 18, 2020.
The special election will take place on May 12, 2020.
Evers also called on the Wisconsin legislature to bring Wisconsin’s special election law into compliance with federal law on key provisions of the Uniformed Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act and also voiced his support for Senate Bill 71, which requires the Wisconsin Elections Commission to reimburse counties and municipalities for certain costs incurred hosting special primaries and special elections for state or national office.
