Below are three resources our reference librarians chose to help you find the information you may find useful before you vote tomorrow.
BirminghamWatch and Weld For Birmingham, Public Radio WBHM 90.3 FM, Starnes Publishing, B-Metro, and Kaleidoscope collaborated to offer an interactive, factual, nonpartisan voter guide. It includes candidate profiles, sample ballots, answers about issues, campaign contributor lists, info on where to vote, and more. Good site for biographies of candidates.
Alabama Votes: The State of Alabama's Official Election Center
Presented by the Secretary of State John H. Merrill, this site covers topics such as voter registration, the dates of the elections, and the voting procedures. There are links to sample ballots and the 2016 voter guide. Good site for sample ballots and voter status.
League of Women Voters: Alabama Elections
The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy. Good site for information about important issues and where the candidates stand on those issues.
