The party nominations for five statewide offices and one congressional seat are on the ballot in Tuesday’s primary runoff election in Alabama.

State Auditor Jim Zeigler and state Rep. Wes Allen are seeking the GOP nomination for secretary of state.

With many Republicans embracing former President Donald Trump’s false claims that he lost the 2020 presidential election because of fraud, both are campaigning on themes of tightening election security.

Birmingham educator Yolanda Rochelle Flowers and state Sen. Malika Sanders Fortier are vying for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination.

One of them will become the first Black person nominated by a major party for governor of Alabama.
