Voters will be choosing a new mayor. Current Mayor Todd Strange decided not to run for re-election. District 6 City Council member Fred Bell and District 7 City Council member Arch Lee also chose not to seek re-election. In District 9, Charles Jinright does not have opposition and will be returning to City Council.

Voters in parts of Montgomery will also be able to vote in the Republican runoff for the Alabama House of Representatives seat in District 74. The seat became vacant with the death of Rep. Dimitri Polizos earlier this year.
