Clanton candidates for mayor and city council should complete qualifying before 4:30 p.m.
Each candidate must complete a statement of candidacy before the end of the day Tuesday. Other paperwork, including a statement of economic interest, also must be filled out.
Municipalities charge different amounts for qualifying fees. The fee is $50 in Clanton and Maplesville and $10 in Thorsby. Jemison does not charge a fee.
