Alabama Special Election Scheduled #AL01

Election officials have scheduled the race to replace Rep. Jo Bonner, R-Ala., who will resign from Congress on Aug. 2.

The primary election will most likely decide who will succeed Bonner, as this is a heavily Republican district.

The special primary will be held Sept. 24, per the governor’s office. If necessary, a primary runoff will be held on Nov. 5.

If there is no runoff, the general election will be on Nov. 5. In the event a runoff is required, the special general election will occur on Dec. 17. Full story
