The Alabama Republican Party has officially opened candidate qualifying for the 2024 election cycle, with the first primary election set for March 5.
Any incumbent or interested candidate up and down the ballot can file a declaration of candidacy and pay the appropriate fees online or in person at the ALGOP Headquarters.
Qualifying will close Nov. 10.
“The Alabama Republican Party is excited about the upcoming 2024 election cycle and working with all our candidates during the qualifying process. This is going to be an important election year with a lot at stake on both the national and local level,” ALGOP Chairman John Wahl said.
“The Republican Party is proud to stand for the timeless principles of freedom and limited government that made our nation great, and we look forward to helping all of our candidates as they stand for these conservative values in 2024. We also have our eyes on the national level as the presidential race heats up.”
In addition to the presidential race, other offices on the 2024 ballot include all seven U.S. House seats; several Alabama Supreme Court positions, including Chief Justice; Public Service Commission president; seats on the Alabama State School Board; Courts of Criminal and Civil Appeals; Circuit and District courts; and all Circuit Clerk positions.
“As a Super Tuesday state, our goal is to see Alabama play a key role in choosing the party’s nominee, and to highlight the state of Alabama during this process. We’ve seen this with recent visits from America’s leading conservatives, and we plan to continue this effort as we get closer to the primary election,” Wahl said.
“Running for office is a calling, and one which requires sacrifice and dedication. I want to thank each candidate that steps forward to run for office. I have such respect for anyone willing to put themselves out there in hopes of making a difference for the people of Alabama. I want each of them to know they have a friend in the ALGOP.”
The Super Tuesday Primary is March 5.
