The Alabama Republican Party will host an in-person qualifying day in Montgomery for the 2022 Alabama Republican Primary on Wednesday.
“We’re excited to take ‘the show on the road’, so-to-speak, and offer an alternate option to qualify in-person in our state capital,” said Alabama Republican Party Chairman John Wahl. “We realize it isn’t always convenient for candidates to make the drive to our headquarters in Birmingham. This gives people an opportunity to come to a second location to file paperwork, pay their fees, and ask questions – with all the same amenities as our office.”
The 2022 ALGOP Montgomery Qualifying Day will take place on Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the 5th-floor conference room of the RSA Plaza building at 770 Washington Avenue, Montgomery, AL 36104.
Members of the ALGOP staff will be available to assist prospective candidates with the qualifying process. Wahl will be available for photo opportunities with prospective 2022 Republican candidates.
The qualifying period for the 2022 ALGOP Primary opened on Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2022, at 8:30 a.m. and will run until Friday, Jan. 28, 2022, at 5:00 p.m.
In addition to the Montgomery qualifying day, candidates can qualify during this time online at algop.org or in-person at ALGOP Headquarters (3505 Lorna Road, Birmingham, AL 35216) during regular business hours.
