Voters across the country go to the polls today to elect the next president and vice president of the United States. Also at stake is control of the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives. In Alabama, voters will elect the president of the Public Service Commission as well as a number of judicial and local races.
Do not forget to vote for all of the constitutional amendments on the back of the ballot.
“Election Day is finally here,” President Donald Trump wrote to supporters. “The fate of our Nation is in your hands. Today, the American People will decide if our Country will continue on the path to greatness, or if we’ll spiral into BIG GOVERNMENT SOCIALISM at the hands of the Radical Left.”
In these final weeks, both presidential candidates have been crisscrossing battleground states from Georgia and Florida to Michigan and Pennsylvania.
“I’ve been meeting so many folks who, even through these difficult times, are proving that America is an exceptional place, home to extraordinary people,” Biden continued. “I do believe that as Americans, there is nothing that we cannot do when we stand together and put our minds to it. And that’s why I’m feeling confident about tomorrow night. We’re ready to turn the page on this chapter in our history. The energy, the momentum at our events has been real.”
The race that has gotten the most attention in Alabama is the battle for U.S. Senate between incumbent Sen. Doug Jones, D-Alabama, and his Republican challenger, former Auburn University head football coach Tommy Tuberville.
“Thank you for welcoming me into your homes, businesses, schools, and communities for the last 19 months. Now let’s finish the job and take back Alabama’s Senate seat,” Tuberville said. “There is not a lot to do other than to go vote. I think we are going to have a massive vote on Tuesday.”
Jones said in an email to supporters: “This race is neck and neck, folks, and whether or not we win is going to come down to turnout.”
“Our team is working around the clock in every county across the state to ensure everyone can get to the polls and make sure their voices are heard safely – and that their votes count,” Jones said.
Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. tonight. Remember to bring a valid photo ID with you and go to your assigned polling place even if you have moved but have not changed your registration.
