Election latest: State parties certify candidates to Secretary of State’s office

Staff members from both the Alabama Republican Party and the Alabama Democratic Party reported to the office of Secretary of State on Wednesday to certify and file the names of their candidates nominated in either the June 5 primary or the July 17 runoff.

State law directs state party executive committees to certify with the Secretary by the third Wednesday following the primary runoff and county executive committees to certify candidates running for county offices with the probate judge by the same deadline.

Certified candidates will be officially announced by Secretary of State John Merrill in the coming weeks and placed on ballots for November’s election.

The general election is November 6.
