Six hopefuls on Tuesday qualified for the June 18 special primary election to fill John Rogers’s vacant Alabama House District 52 seat.

Rogers, D-Birmingham, officially resigned from his elected office in March after pleading guilty to federal felony charges.

The qualifiers are Dedra Campbell; Kelvin Datcher; Eric Major; LaTanya Millhouse; Eyrika L. Parker and Frank Woodson.

Datcher is Deputy Director Community Development for the City of Birmingham; Major is a former State Rep. from Fairfield; Millhouse is a community activist from Titusville;  Parker, Jefferson County treasurer, was ruled ineligible for a second term because she did not turn in required ethics paperwork in time, a judge ruled.

House District 52 includes parts of Jefferson County.

The deadline for qualifying was Tuesday (April 16) and Governor Kay Ivey set the primary election for mid-June. The special primary runoff, if necessary is set for Tuesday, July 16 and the special general election for Tuesday, October 1, 2024.

The deadline for all independent candidates and/or minor parties is Tuesday, June 18 at 5 p.m.
