Alabama Special Senate Election 2017 Dates Results Live Voting Candidates Opinion

Alabama Special Senate Election Date: primary August 15 and runoff September 26

A special election for the United States Senate in Alabama is scheduled to be held on December 12, 2017 to choose Senator Jeff Sessions' successor and to complete the Senate term through January 2021. Sessions was confirmed by the Senate to serve as United States Attorney General on February 8, 2017, and subsequently resigned from the Senate.

Governor Robert J. Bentley chose Luther Strange, the Attorney General of Alabama, to succeed Sessions, filling the seat until the special election takes place. Although he had the power to schedule an election in 2017, Bentley initially decided to align it with the 2018 general election, before Kay Ivey, his successor, later moved the date up to December 12, 2017, scheduling the primary for August 15 and runoff for September 26.
Robert B. Aderholt, a member of the United States House of Representatives, had asked to be appointed to the seat. Representative Mo Brooks had also expressed interest in the seat, while Strange had stated before being selected that he would run for the seat in the special election whether or not he was appointed. Other potential choices Bentley interviewed for the appointment include Del Marsh, the President Pro Tem of the Alabama Senate, Roy Moore, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Alabama, and Jim Byard, the director of the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs
