We are now a day from the November 3rd election day after a long campaign season. While there will be a record number of absentee ballots this election, the majority of voters will show up at the polls that day for the presidential election.
And while the top of the ticket is the main driver at the ballot box this year, voters will have a lot of decisions to make when the election arrives.
The presidential candidates and race for the Alabama Senate will draw the most voters. but there are a number of candidates and ballot initiatives. Most of the names on the ballots will be for local county officials in Alabama’s 67 Counties from constables to tax accessors.
There are also 36 individual amendments around the state for some and six statewide individual amendments that will be on the ballot for consideration by all voters in the state.
The Presidential election will get the headlines, but Alabama voters should be prepared to make decisions on a number of candidates and issues on election day.
