As of July 2014, four special elections have been scheduled for the Wisconsin State Legislature in 2013. These elections were called to fill vacancies in Wisconsin State Assembly Districts 21, 69, 82 and 98.

How vacancies are filled


In Wisconsin, any vacancy in the Legislature must be filled by a special election.[1] The governor can call for an election when allowed by law. The election cannot be held after February 1 before a spring general election, unless it is held on the same day of the election, which is the first Tuesday in April. The same requirement applies to any election preceding the fall general election (after September 1), with the exception for elections held on the first Tuesday in November.[2] Also, all vacancies must be filled quickly as long the vacancy happened before the second Tuesday in May during an election year.[3]
