ST PETERSBURG, FL (WFLA) -

Voters head to the polls Tuesday for a special primary election in Pinellas County.

For the first time in more than four decades, a new congress member will represent the people of Florida District 13 in the US House of Representatives. The seat was vacated in October with the sudden death of Rep. C.W. Bill Young.

Three Republican candidates want his seat. The candidates are David Jolly, Kathleen Peters and Mark Bircher.

The winner of Tuesday's special election will take on Democrat Alex Sink and Libertarian Lucas Overby in the general election. That special election will be held on March 11.

Polling places are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. You can find your precinct on www.votepinellas.com. Florida is a closed primary state, which means you can only vote Tuesday if you're a registered Republican living in the district.
