HENRY COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — A Democratic Henry County commission candidate is no longer required to run in the upcoming election, according to Henry County commission Chairman David Money

Steven Stanford was aiming for the District 4 seat, but earlier this week it was brought to the attention of the commission that the candidate resided in District 5 — it was confirmed.

David Money says that it was an honest mistake — in fact, many district lines had to be re-established as a result of the population change in the 2020 census.

Money reached out to Stanford about it and he’s understanding of the situation.

He will remain on the Democratic ballot for May 24th’s primary but if he receives the most votes he will not be able to participate in the general election, unfortunately.

If you have any questions about the district you are in or where your voting precinct is, contact the Henry County Board of Registrars.
