Voters in Montgomery electing state representative

Voters in part of Montgomery are voting in a special election for a state representative. The Republican runoff Tuesday in House District 74 features Montgomery County Commissioner Dimitri Polizos against Charlotte Meadows, who's the former president of the Montgomery County Board of Education.

The polls are open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.     

The runoff winner will go to the Legislature because there is no Democratic candidate. The winner will replace Republican Jay Love, who resigned with more than a year left in his term.     

Polizos led the three-candidate primary in October. The state teachers' organization, the Alabama Education Association, has been heavily involved in the election with ads criticizing Meadows. She previously served as Alabama outreach director for StudentsFirst, which supports charter schools. AEA opposes charter schools.
