2018 Candidate Qualifying is Open Until February 9

The Alabama Democratic Party opened candidate qualifying today for the June 5, 2018 Democratic Primary Election. A slate of impressive candidates from across the state have already been gearing up for a spirited primary season.  As expected, a steady stream of candidates running for re-election and as first-time candidates brought qualifying papers by the Alabama Democratic Party’s state headquarters at 501 Adams Ave., Montgomery, AL, today.  Qualifying will end on February 9, 2018, for all federal, state, and county offices, as well as the State Democratic Executive Committee. 

Nancy Worley, Chairwoman of the Democratic Party, said, “We are pleased to see so many strong candidates turn in their qualifying papers today; numerous others called to say they mailed their qualifying papers or plan to bring them to the office this week.”

Individuals interested in running for office at the State and Federal level will qualify with the state party, while those planning to run for county office will qualify with their respective county Democratic Party Chairs.  Potential candidates can find a list of County Chairs, including their contact information, on the Party website here.  For additional information, call the Alabama Democratic Party Office at (334) 262-2221.
