MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Several locations in the River Region are gearing up for elections on Tuesday.

In Montgomery, a special election is being held to fill the position for City Council District Four. The winner of the election will fill the seat left by David Burkette.

Burkette is running in the Democratic seat for Alabama Senate District 26. Burkette will face Republican Darrell "DJ" Johnson in the November general election.

In Auburn, voters will elect the city's next mayor. The election is being held after current mayor Bill Hamm announced his retirement after serving the city for 20 years. Polls will open at 7 a.m. Tuesday.

In Ozark, voters will decide on the fate of Sunday alcohol sales. If the bill, also known as the "Brunch Bill", is passed it will allow restaurants to begin selling alcohol at 10 a.m. on Sundays instead of waiting until noon.

It's been 15 years since Opelika residents have had the opportunity to vote on alcohol sales. The bill only applies to drinks being consumed on restaurant properties.
