The general election will be held on November 4, 2014. The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in this election was February 7, 2014.

2014 special election
Holmes won election in the special election for Alabama House of Representatives District 31. The seat was vacant following Charles Barrett Mask's (R) resignation to work as the new chief executive officer of the Alabama Association of Realtors. Holmes faced Jimmy Collier, Michael Griggs and Frank Bertarelli in the December 3, 2013 Republican primary. Since no candidate gained more than fifty percent of the votes, the top two vote-getters - Holmes and Collier - met in a runoff on February 4, which Holmes won. As no Democrat filed to run, Holmes was declared the winner.
Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
Note: As of October 2014, we were unable to locate any scorecards for the state of Alabama. If you are aware of a scorecard Ballotpedia has not included please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
