Cullman area voters head to the ballot box
CULLMAN, Ala. (AP) — Voters in Cullman, Morgan and Blount counties will go to the polls Tuesday in the Republican primary for the House District 11 seat vacated when Republican Jeremy Oden of Eva was appointed to the Alabama Public Service Commission. Four candidates will be on the ballot in the GOP primary. The candidates for the Republican nomination include 58-year-old Lydia Haynes, a farmer and co-owner of Integrity Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation in Cullman; former Cullman County school board member 62-year-old Danny Alldredge; former Cullman County Commission on Aging Director 59-year-old Randall Shedd, and 51-year-old Mike Graves, superintendent of public works for South Vinemont. Only one Democrat qualified to run for Oden's seat, Kelly Evans. She will face the winner of Tuesday's primary in the general election.
