HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – It’s almost time for the Valley to vote again.  This time, it’s for Huntsville’s municipal election.

Tuesday, voters will go to the polls to determine several key leadership positions.

And today is an important deadline if you plan to participate in the election, but can’t make it to the polls.

This is the last day to apply for a regular absentee ballot for the general municipal election.

That means whether you mailed in your application or hand delivered it, it has to be in the office by the close of business today.

The absentee ballots themselves are due to be turned in by the close of business next Monday.

There are two Huntsville City Council seats and three Huntsville City School Board seats up for grabs.

The council seats are for Districts Three and Four.  There are two candidates in each race.

The school board seats are for Districts Two, Three and Four.  A total of nine candidates are running for those spots.

The election is Tuesday.

If you haven’t had time to research the candidates, we’ve taken action to make sure you are informed.

Check out interviews with all of the people running for these offices as they were featured on our Leadership Perspectives segments that run on Sunday mornings on WHNT NEWS 19.

For those candidates who end up in a run-off, that vote will is set for October 7th.
