BIRMINGHAM, Alabama: A special election is scheduled for February 26 to fill a vacancy in District 97 of the Alabama House of Representatives.

Yvonne Kennedy (D) died on December 8, 2012. Gov. Robert Bentley (R) scheduled a special election to fill the vacancy, with a primary on February 26, 2013. However, no Republican candidates filed for the seat, which in turn has turned the primary into the general election.[1][2]

Here are the seven Democratic candidates vying for the seat:
