Information on 2010 Primary Elections

The Shelby County Reporter has produced an 2010 Election Guide that is included with this week's newspaper. The so-called "mid-term" elections are important: all seven of Alabama's U.S. House seats are on the ballot, as well as a U.S. Senate seat. Alabama will choose its next governor in 2010 and citizens will evaluate dozens of candidates vying for statewide office. In addition to a list of all of the candidates on the June ballot the Guide contains other helpful information for voters, including this list of important dates:
  • Friday, May 21 - Last day to register to vote in primary
  • Tuesday, June 1 - Primary election
  • Tuesday, July 13 - Primary runoff election
  • Friday, October 22 - Last day to register to vote for general election
  • Tuesday, November 2 - General election
In addition to the above dates, you'll want to be aware of deadlines for applying for and postmarking absentee ballots. To get a copy of the voter registration form or to get the answers to questions about elections you may visit, the state of Alabama's official online election center.
