Live Results for Alabama State House 78 Special Primary Election

May 25, 2021

In a quiet pre-holiday week, the only race we're following is a Democratic primary in Alabama. Next Tuesday, all eyes will be on the special election in New Mexico's first congressional district.  

Alabama State House District 78 Primary (Democratic)

There are 105 State House districts in Alabama. The chamber is dominated by Republicans, who hold a 76-27 advantage. There are vacancies in Districts 73 and 78. The District 73 general special election will be on July 13.

The District 78 vacancy was created by the resignation of Democrat Kirk Hatcher after he won a special election for an open State Senate seat.

On the Republican side, Loretta Grant was the only qualifier. There will be no party primary.

Four Democrats are seeking the party's nomination. If nobody gets a majority of the vote, there will be a runoff on June 22. The general special election is on September 7.

Polls close at 8:00 PM ET.
