Candidates for statewide political offices in Alabama can resume fundraising efforts after the blackout period for doing so ended on Monday.
That blackout period, established by Alabama code, prevents candidates from soliciting or accepting contributions while the Legislature is in session but also ends within 120 of any primary, runoff or general election, the Alabama Secretary of State’s office said in a press release Monday.
The blackout period doesn’t apply to candidates for circuit or district judge, district attorney, or other county or local elected positions.
Primary elections in Alabama are set for May 24. Primary runoff elections, if necessary, are to take place June 1and the general election is set for Nov. 8.
