Today the polls open for the Alabama Republican Primary in Alabama House of Representatives District 74. HD74 is in Montgomery County.

Six candidates will be on the Republican special primary election ballot.

They include Michael Fritz, Tobias Grant, Jesse Caleb Heifner, Jay King, Charlotte Meadows and Daniel Sparkman.

HD74 became vacant when State Rep. Dimitri Polizos, R-Montgomery, suddenly died from a heart attack.

The party primary runoff elections will be on Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2019, if necessary, and the general election will be on Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2019.

If there is no need for a Republican primary runoff, then the general election will be held Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2019.

Wayford Mack qualified as a Democrat. With no opponent, there will be no need for a Democratic primary, thus today’s primary election applies only to Republican voters, though Alabama has no party registration, so anyone can participate.

Mack will await the winner of the Republican primary in the special general election.

Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. To participate in this, or any Alabama election, residents must be a registered voter, vote at their assigned polling place and bring valid photo ID to the polls.

The deadline for all independent candidates or minor parties to qualify is today at 5 p.m.
