The special primary election will be held on Tuesday, March 30, 2021. If a runoff election is needed, it will be held on Tuesday, April 27, 2021. The general election will be held on Tuesday, July 13, 2021.

The vacancy in Senate District 14 occurred because incumbent state Sen. Cam Ward, R-Alabaster, was appointed as director of the Alabama Bureau of Pardons and Paroles by Gov. Kay Ivey. The district includes portions of Shelby, Bibb and Chilton Counties.

The vacancy in House District 73 occurred after incumbent state Rep. Matt Fridy, R-Montevallo, was elected to the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals. The district is located in Shelby County.

Both districts were most recently in Republican hands.
