Elections for the office of Alabama State Senate will take place in 2014. A primary election took place June 3, 2014; a runoff election took place where necessary on July 15, 2014. 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. Mike Curtis defeated Earl Gardner in the Democratic primary. Chris Seibert, Jonathan Berryhill and Tim Melson faced off in the Republican primary. Because no candidate received more than 50 percent of the vote, the top two vote-getters - Siebert and Melson - met in a runoff election, which Melson won.[3] Curtis will face Melson in the general election.[4][5][6][7]
