VOTE! POLLS OPEN TUESDAY AT 7 A.M. VOTE!

Walker County residents came out for early voting in droves, with more than 9,700 voters casting ballots at the Walker County Annex.

But, there still are a lot of votes to be cast. Polls open across the county at 7 a.m. Tuesday and will remain open until 7 p.m.

Voters need to remember to bring a photo ID. They also need to remember that within 100 feet of the polling place there is no campaigning. This includes a voter’s person. No buttons, stickers, hats that show candidate preference are allowed. Verbal campaigning with 100 feet is not allowed. Cell phones are not allowed, so if you need a “cheat sheet” bring it on paper.

In Huntsville in particular, voters may encounter lines because of the long list of City Charter amendments. If voting late in the day, you are entitled to vote if you are in line at 7 p.m. At 7 p.m. a poll worker will stand at the end of the line and no one can join it at that point.

Following is the list of polling places. If you are not sure where to vote call
