The 2018 Midterm Election is Alabama's next chance to vote. This statewide election will determine seats for local, state, and federal positions. Read more about Voting in the 2018 Midterms: What You Need to Know

This guide provides a description of the elected positions in Alabama, as well as some links to candidates who are running for those positions. It is not intended to assess any candidate's fitness for a position, nor does it recommend any candidate over another candidate. We encourage all voters to research their own candidates to decide who they want to vote for. Here are suggestions on how to learn more about the candidates:

  • Follow them online. Go to their campaign website, sign up for their emails, and like their pages on social media. 
  • Go to events. Attend candidate forums, debates, and other campaign events where they are speaking. Come prepared with your questions. 
  • Read the news. Many local news outlets, such as Alabama Political Reporter, AL.com, Montgomery Advertiser, and others publish more detailed candidate profiles in the weeks leading up to an election. While some sources may be more or less reliable than others, reading a variety of sources can provide a good overview of a candidate and their history of public service. 

Alabama Senate

While both legislative bodies pass bills on public policy matters, set levels for state spending, raise or lower taxes, the Senate has the sole power of confirmation of certain appointees.
