MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Gov. Robert Bentley has called special elections for two seats in the Alabama House of Representatives.
Bentley announced Thursday that special primary elections in districts 74 and 104 are scheduled for Oct. 8. The special general election is scheduled for Dec. 3.
Bentley says if the major parties only have one candidate in either race, a primary won't be necessary and a general election will be held that day.
If a candidate doesn't receive a majority of votes in the primary, a runoff will be held Nov. 19, and the general election would be Jan. 14.
District 74 covers parts of Montgomery County and was occupied by Rep. Jay Love who resigned Aug. 1. District 104 covers areas of Mobile and was occupied by Rep. Jim Barton, who resigned Wednesday.
