Special election: Polls close at 7 tonight

Posted: Updated:
ST. PETERSBURG (AP) -

The replacement to fill the late Bill Young's seat in Congress will be chosen after a special election in Pinellas County.

Polls open at 7 a.m. Tuesday and will close at 7 p.m.

The race for the 13th congressional district seat has garnered national attention and nearly $9 million in outside money. The district is considered a tossup, and ads for Democrat Alex Sink and Republican David Jolly have inundated mailboxes and airwaves in recent weeks. A third candidate, Libertarian Lucas Overby, is also running.

Voters in this stretch of beach towns and retirement communities provide the first 2014 campaign test of whether Democrats can counter GOP attacks on the president's health care overhaul.

Young died in October after serving in Congress for more than 40 years.
