Though Talladega County voters have no local races in which to cast their votes during the July 15 primary runoff election, there are several statewide races with winners yet to be determined.

Statewide Republican ballots feature the Secretary of State’s race between John Merrill and Reese McKinney, the State Auditor’s race between Jim Zeigler and Dale Peterson, and the race for Public Service Commission Place 2 between Chris “Chip” Beeker and Terry Dunn.

Also on the ballot is the “Cotton Amendment,” an amendment to allow Alabama’s cotton farmers to decide if their current voluntary checkoff program should become automatic.

If the amendment passes, it would let the Alabama Cotton Commission schedule a vote for cotton farmers to decide on the proposed change to the checkoff program.

More information on the amendment can be found at

Photo identification cards are required to vote.
