Seat may be vacant for entire legislative session
Governor Bentley has set the special election schedule for House District 97. The seat was formerly held by Rep. Yvonne Kennedy, who passed away December 8.
The election timeline will be as follows:
- The primary election will be held February 26, 2013, unless the major parties have only one candidate, in which case the general election will be held that date;
- A primary runoff, or the general election if no runoff is needed, will be held April 9, 2013; and,
- If both a primary and runoff are required, the general election will be held May 21, 2013.
If a primary and runoff are both needed, the seat will remain vacant for the entire 2013 legislative session.
