Qualifying is open for the Special Primary Election to fill the vacant House District 58 seat in Jefferson County, created by the resignation of Rep. Oliver Robinson. Any interested registered voter in HD58 may call the Party office at (334) 262-2221 to get qualifying forms. An interested person may also print a qualifying form, located on the Democratic Party's website, aldemocrats.org. The qualifying fee is $558.26, half the usual Legislative qualifying fee because the eventual winner will serve half the term or less.
All qualifying papers, along with the fee, must be received in the State Party Office by Tuesday, December 27, 2016, at 5:00 PM. A candidate may hand deliver qualifying forms to the Alabama Democratic Party Office, 501 Adams Ave, Montgomery, AL 36104, or he/she may mail the form to the Alabama Democratic Party, P.O. Box 950, Montgomery, AL 36101.
According to Chair Nancy Worley, "Democrats in Jefferson County have an excellent opportunity to fill this vacant seat," which was created when former Representative Oliver Robinson resigned. “The Alabama Democratic Party is excited to hold onto this seat and elect someone who will work hard and represent House District 58 with integrity and accountability,” said Worley.
