12 people qualify to run for Montgomery mayor
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The qualification deadline to run for Montgomery’s municipal elections has come and gone. Now, we’re getting a better idea who’s in the running to replace outgoing Mayor Todd Strange and those seeking a spot on the city council.
The deadline to file was Tuesday at 5 p.m., but it could take several days to confirm if some potential candidates meet the qualifications to run.
To qualify, a candidate must submit signatures of one-fourth of one percent of registered voters in Montgomery. That equals about 350 signatures. The Board of Elections can certify candidates in the coming days and will then release an official ballot after all candidate submissions are reviewed. This story will be updated.
The election will be held on Aug. 27. If a run-off is needed, it will be held Oct. 8.
