Election Day: Information you need to know at the polls







Q: What’s being decided in Tuesday’s elections?
A: Voters are choosing their municipal leaders for the next four years – mayors, council members, aldermen and others.
Q: What about the previous elections in May?
A: Those were party primaries, and only Democrats and Republicans were involved. In some cases, the winners of those primaries have no opponents Tuesday and thus will take office in July. But their names will still appear unopposed on the ballots.
Q: When can I vote for someone who’s not a Republican or Democrat?
A: Tuesday is your chance, because the general election ballots contain not only party nominees but independent candidates.
Q: I didn’t vote in the primary. Can I still vote Tuesday?
A: Yes, as long as you’re registered to vote in your municipality.
