Last week, we celebrated Independence Day by reflecting on the value of deliberative democracy. What better way to maintain our democracy than by exercising your right to vote? Today is the statewide primary runoff election, and your civic involvement still matters.

As we said before, an active and engaged citizenry is the best anti-poverty program for Alabama.  Together, we can hold our elected official accountable for representing our interests and governing values.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Are you prepared? Check out sample ballots for all Alabama counties here.  Don’t forget to bring your id and check your polling location (many have changed).
