Qualifying for the Aug. 28 municipal elections begins today.

This year, municipal elections are slated for Aug. 28, and, if necessary, run-off elections will be held Oct. 9, 2012.

Each municipality is tasked with setting its own candidate qualifying fees. In Andalusia, there is a $50 fee to run for either mayor or councilperson. In Opp and Florala, the fees are $50 to run for mayor and $25 to run for a council seat.

To qualify, one should contact one’s city/town clerk.
