The former director of the Cullman County Commission on Aging, Randall Shedd, and former Cullman County school board member Danny Alldredge are facing off in the Republican runoff for Alabama House District 11.
Polls are open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Tuesday in parts of Cullman, Blount and Morgan counties.
Shedd led the primary election Feb. 13, and Alldredge finished second in the field of four candidates.
The runoff winner will meet Democrat Kelly Evans in the general election May 7.
Gov. Robert Bentley scheduled the special election to fill a vacancy created when he appointed the incumbent, Republican Jeremy Oden, to the state Public Service Commission.
