Deadline Nearing to Register for Special Election

The Primary Election to replace the Senate seat held by now U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions will be held on August 15th.  Alabamians who want to participate in that election must be registered by the end-of-the-month deadline. 

People can check their registration status on the Secretary of State’s website.

A new window for registration will open up before the General Election which will take place on December 12th.  Both Republicans and Democrats face crowded primary fields:

In the GOP, Bentley-appointee Luther Strange is trying to keep the seat, while Rep. Mo Brooks from the Fifth Congressional District, former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, State Senator Trip Pittman, Dr. Randy Brinson, Bryan Peeples, James Baretta, Joseph Breault, and Mary Maxwell are facing off.

The Democratic Primary features former U.S. Attorney Doug Jones, Michael Hansen, Will Boyd, Vann Caldwell, Jason Fisher, Robert Kennedy, Jr. and Charles Nana.
