    DETROIT -
    Voters are being asked Wednesday to decide who will face off in November to serve the rest of Thaddeus McCotter’s term.

    McCotter resigned from his 11th Congressional District seat after failing to get enough valid signatures to appear on the ballot. Members of his campaign are facing charges for an alleged petition-rigging scandal.

    Voters will choose one of five Republicans on Wednesday’s ballot to appear on the November ballot. That Republican candidate will face the lone Democrat, David Curson.

    Whoever wins in November will serve in the U.S. House of Representatives for the remainder of former congressman McCotter’s term.

    The polls opened at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.

    A separate contest on the Nov. 6 ballot decided who fills the seat in 2013-2014. Republican ex-teacher Kerry Bentivolio faces Democratic Canton Township Trustee Syed Taj in that race.
