Gov. Kay Ivey on Thursday set special election dates for Alabama House District 73, a seat that was held by Matt Fridy, who was elected to the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals.
Ivey set the special primary election for March 30 and the special primary runoff, if necessary, for April 27. Ivey set the special general election for July 13.
“The election for House District 73 coincides with the special election for the vacant state senate seat so that we can ensure the people of Shelby County have representation,” Ivey said in a statement. “I encourage everyone in this district to get out and vote. Let’s make sure that you have a strong voice advocating for you in the Alabama Legislature.”
The qualifying deadline for candidates of major parties is Jan. 26 at 5 p.m. The deadline for all independent candidates and/or minor parties is March 30 at 5 p.m.
