The Alabama Democrats have begun their qualifying period for the Special Primary election for House District 21, called earlier this week by the Governor in order to fill the vacancy left after the death of Rep. Jim Patterson.

“Democrats have an excellent opportunity to pick up the vacant House seat in Madison County,” Worley said. “The Alabama Democratic Party wants to win this seat and elect a Legislator who will work hard and represent House District 21 with integrity and accountability.”

Candidates can call the state party office or go online to to get forms. Qualifying requires a fee of $558.26, which is about half of the usual Legislative qualifying fee because the winner will serve half a term.

Potential candidates must file their qualifying forms and fee by Oct. 26 at 5 p.m.
