Elections authorities in American Samoa have announced three polling places for a special election this week.

Voters will choose a new member of the House of Representatives for the Sua Number 1 seat.

This follows the resignation of former faipule Puleleliite Tufele Liamatua Jr.

He's now the executive director of the American Samoa Telecommunications Authority.

Five men and one woman are vying for the seat in the 21 member House.
