Alabama candidates begin qualifying for major 2018 races


Candidate qualifying began Monday in Alabama.

To qualify for elected office in Alabama, state candidates must file documents with several entities: the Alabama Republican or Democratic Party (or local County Chair), the Alabama Ethics Commission, the Alabama Secretary of State, and the IRS.

The Young Republican Federation of Alabama took to Facebook to promote the opportunity to get involved in government: “Be part of the solution for a better Alabama!”

Candidates from both parties have until 5:00 p.m. February 9 to file the necessary paperwork to run for major office in 2018. The primary elections will be on June 5, followed by runoff elections on July 17 and the General Election on Nov. 6.

Alabama Republicans wishing to qualify to run for office can find more info here. Democrats can find info here.
