The party primary runoff elections will be on Tuesday, August 27, 2019, and the general election will be on Tuesday, November 12, 2019.

The House District 74 seat was previously held by state Representative Dimitri Polizos, R-Montgomery, before his sudden passing on March 26, 2019, from a heart attack.
“In order to ensure that House District 74 is equally represented in the Alabama Legislature, I have set a timeline to elect a new representative,” Governor Ivey said. “Dimitri was, without a doubt, a pillar of the Montgomery community and will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. To honor his legacy, I encourage all citizens that live in this district to participate in our valued democratic process.”
The deadline for qualifying with one of the two major political parties is Tuesday, April 9, 2019, at 5 p.m. The deadline for all independent candidates and/or minor parties to qualify is Tuesday, June 11, 2019, at 5 p.m.
