What you need to know for Election Day in Alabama

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Tuesday is Election Day across the United States.

In addition to the presidential race, there are many other races and key issues on ballots in Alabama.

They include one of Alabama’s U.S. Senate seats, several U.S. House of Representatives seats, including districts 2 and 3, state board of education seats, six constitutional amendments, and several local amendments.

Voters in Montgomery will also decide on a referendum to raise property taxes to support public schools.

A record number of Alabamians have already voted with absentee ballots. A record number are also expected to vote on Election Day, which means you might have to wait in line.
