State GOP opens qualifying in Montgomery, Birmingham
The Montgomery location will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday on the sixth floor of the RSA Plaza, 770 Washington Ave.
Candidates can also qualify at the party headquarters, 3415 Independence Drive in Birmingham from Tuesday until qualifying ends on April 2.
"Obviously with the Legislature in session, there are a lot of candidates that are naturally in Montgomery, so we felt that having two locations would make it easier on everyone," said state Rep. Mike Hubbard, chairman of the Alabama Republican Party. "There is so much excitement surrounding this election cycle, having two locations open for the initial surge when qualifying opens also comes out of necessity due to the volume of people who are running his year."
Qualifying forms will be available at the locations in Montgomery and Birmingham and are available online at www.Alabama2010.com. People can click on the "Candidates" link for the proper forms and information on fees.
