Here are the candidates from the 6 statewide races headed to runoff elections

0

Alabama voters cast their ballots on June 5 in a handful of statewide races. Of those contest, only six were forced to move to the upcoming July 17 primary runoff elections. Meaning, voters will need to head back to the polls and cast their ballots yet again ahead of the Nov. 6 general elections to help final their party’s nominee.

That said, the cross-over voter ban is officially in effect. Meaning, whatever party a voter choose to vote with in the primary, they cannot change it in the runoff elections. So if you voted with the Democratic party on June 5, you’re unable to vote in any of the statewide runoff races (though there are several down-ballot run-off races, so don’t count your vote completely out).

With just 33 days to go until the runoff, here’s an overview at how the candidates fared in the primary elections, as well as handy links to their websites and social media pages:
