Across the nation, special elections are frequently conducted to fill vacancies in state legislatures. 27 states use special elections to fill legislative vacancies. In two states, Illinois and Indiana, special elections are used in limited circumstances. As of August 2014, 28 special elections have been held and another 6 (not including runoffs) have been scheduled in 14 states. Since these elections are intended to fill unexpected vacancies, more will be scheduled as new vacancies arise.

Breakdown of 2014 special elections

The reasons for special elections were as follows:

  • 2 due to criminal prosecution/criminal issues
  • 3 due to a legislator's death
  • 3 due to the acceptance of another job
  • 4 due to the appointment to a new position
  • 3 due to retirement
  • 8 due to election to another position
  • 1 due to a legislator reaching a term limit

The partisan breakdown for vacancies is as follows:

CheckedBoxOffset.jpg Alabama House of Representatives District 31

See also: Alabama state legislative special elections, 2014

Mike Holmes, Jimmy Collier, Michael Griggs and Frank Bertarelli faced off in the Republican primary.[1][2] As no candidate received more than fifty percent of the vote, the top-two vote-getters - Holmes and Collier - met in the Republican primary runoff on February 4, which Holmes won.[3][4]

The seat was vacant following Barry Mask's (R) appointment as the new chief executive officer of the Alabama Association of Realtors.[5]

A special election for the position of Alabama House of Representatives District 31 was initially called for January 28, with a primary on December 3, 2013. Because no Democratic candidate filed to run, the Republican primary runoff became the special election. Candidates from both major parties had until October 10, 2013, to file certified nomination papers with the Secretary of State.[5] Due to inclement weather, the election was pushed back a week to February 4.[6]

Anthony "Alann" Johnson (D) defeated Willie "W.A." Casey (R) in the special election, which took place on April 1.[7][8] Johnson, Arthur D. Shores Lee, Demetrius C. Newton Jr. and Frank Topping faced off in the Democratic primary.[9] As no candidate received more than fifty percent of the vote, the top-two vote-getters - Johnson and Lee - met in the Democratic primary runoff on February 4, which Johnson won.[10] Casey was unopposed in the Republican primary.[1]

The seat was vacant following Demetrius Newton's (D) death on September 11, 2013.[11]
