SELMA, Ala. (AP) - Four Democratic candidates have qualified to run for the state House of Representatives District 67 seat vacated by Darrio Melton.

Tuesday was the last day to qualify for the seat that covers Dallas and Perry counties. The candidates are Raymond J. Butler and Valenci’a Quest, both of Orrville; and Prince Chestnut and Latrell “Champ” Richardson, both of Selma.

Melton gave up the seat after he was elected Selma’s mayor in October. He was elected to the House in 2010. His second term is set to expire in November 2018. Whoever is elected will serve the remainder of his term.

Alabama Republican Party spokesman Reed Phillips tells The Selma Times-Journal (https://bit.ly/2gL5VcT ) that no Republican candidates qualified.

A special primary election is set for Jan. 31; the general election is April 18.
