FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BARRY MOORE STATEMENT ON MOVING RUN-OFF ELECTIONS
Montgomery, AL – Governor Kay Ivey announced today that the Alabama Primary run-off elections will be moved from March 31st to July 14th due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Barry Moore said in a statement:
“I think Governor Ivey did the right thing by moving the election. Many of our poll workers are ‘Seasoned Citizens’, and they’re one of the most vulnerable groups. There’s no way we’d be able to limit the polls to 10 people or keep several feet of distance between them. Having the election on March 31st, we would run the risk of hurting voter turnout and that is an affront to our democratic process.
“The integrity of our election process and the health of our most vulnerable citizens matters more right now than sticking to a calendar date. Governor Ivey is showing great leadership here in Alabama, just like President Trump is showing great leadership in Washington. I fully support what both of them are doing in the face of this crisis. Together, we’re going to get through this. Keep calm, and have faith. Practice prayer, not panic. We are Americans. We are Alabamians. We will come out of this stronger than ever.”
Barry Moore will be on the ballot in the Republican runoff election, currently scheduled for July 14th. He is a small businessman, Veteran, former member of the Alabama Legislature, husband and father of four from Enterprise.
The campaign plans to do several live streams per week to connect with voters at home, with urgent video updates as needed. For more information, go to www.BarryMooreforCongress.com or on Facebook @BarryMooreforCongress.
