The Saint Louis County board set a date for a special election to fill the seat of Steve O'Neil who died two weeks ago.
The election in the east Duluth district will take place on January 14. Candidates can start filing paperwork at the end of next month.
If more than two candidates file for the position, a primary election is required and will take place on November 5. That date is the same as Duluth's general election.
The board is still considering whether to appoint an interim commissioner to the seat.
