Election Day: Tuesday, November 8

Election Day is  Tuesday, November 8  and we all know the importance of every vote. Our country will be picking a president, but that isn't the only race on the ballot. 

Richard Shelby(R) and Ron Crumpton(D) are facing off for a U.S. Senate seat. 

There are 14 statewide amendments on the ballot and 5 proposed local amendments. That's why the Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce Governmental Affairs Committee wants you to have the tools you need to make an informed decision before heading to the polls. 

You'll find links below to several resources including a breakdown of the statewide amendments with plain language summaries, a listing of the local amendments on the ballot, a Baldwin County sample ballot and a tool to locate your polling place.
