City elections set for Tuesday, Wet-dry not on ballot until November

Voters will go to the polls Tues., Aug. 28, to elect municipal officials in Hartselle, Decatur, Priceville, Falkville, Somerville, Eva and Trinity.

Polls will open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.

Absentee ballots will be available at municipal clerk’s offices until 4:30 p.m. Thur., Aug. 23. Anyone may apply for one of the ballots but the completed ballot must be returned by the voter for which it was obtained.

The return deadline in person is 4:30 p.m. on Aug. 27 and via mail it must be postmarked not later than Aug. 27 and arrive not later than noon on election day.
