Gabrielle Giffords Tribute (PLAYLIST)

Nearly five months after former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) announced she was leaving Congress, residents of Arizona's 8th congressional district headed to the polls on Tuesday to choose a replacement.

A little more than a year after being wounded in a gruesome shooting at a Tucson, Ariz. market, Giffords decided to step down to focus on her recovery.

She has been active in the special election campaign, devoting her efforts to helping former aide Ron Barber (D) in his race against Republican Jesse Kelly. Barber was injured in the same shooting, undergoing six months of therapy before returning to office last July.

As Arizonans make their choice, HuffPost Politics rewinds to some of the former congresswoman's more moving moments, pairing those scenes with our Gabrielle Giffords tribute playlist on Spotify.
