Arab, Guntersville, Union Grove, and Grant are all included in District 27. Governor Ivey has scheduled the primary on April 2; the runoff election is scheduled for April 30; and the general election is scheduled for July 16.

Among the contenders is Stacy George, a farmer and businesswoman who has placed third in the Senate District contest and has competed twice for governor;
