PRESIDENTAL DELEGATES

Votes for delegate candidates pledged to someone other than the voter’s choice for President ARE NOT ALLOWED UNDER REPUBLICAN PARTY RULES. The names of unopposed delegates do not appear on the ballot.

These are individuals who represent their state at national party conventions. The candidate who receives a majority of the party’s delegates wins the nomination. The parties have different numbers of delegates due to the rules involved in awarding them. Each party also has some unpledged delegates or superdelegates. These delegates are not bound to a specific candidate heading into the national convention.

Statewide Amendment #1

There is one amendment for the Primary Election Ballot. The amendment looks to make adjustments to the Board of Education for Alabama. A brief description from the Secretary of State’s website is listed below. If you like more detail on the amendment visit https://www.sos.alabama.gov/alabama-votes/voter/ballot-measures/statewide

Amendment 1 does three things. First, it renames the State Board of Education the “Alabama Commission on Elementary and Secondary Education” and provides that commission members are appointed for up to two terms by the Governor and approved by the Senate rather than elected by the public. Second, it changes the title of the top public education official in the state and provides that this official’s appointment would be approved by the Senate. Third, it requires the Commission to adopt education standards in place of “common core.”

There is no cost for Amendment 1.

The Constitutional authority for passage of Amendment 1 is set forth in Sections 284 and 285 of the State Constitution. These sections outline the way a constitutional amendment may be put to the people of the State for a vote.
