WHNT News 19 has you covered with local election results tonight! Check results tonight on TV, on WHNT.com and on our app.

If you're not sure where you vote, check your polling site ahead of time.

Some people, including around 3,000 in Huntsville and more than 8,000 in Madison, may have different polling places for national/state/county elections vs. municipal elections. That's the case for people who usually vote in county precincts, but need to switch to a city precinct in city elections.

"We want everybody to get out and vote. We want them to go to the right polling place, but we don't want them to be frustrated because they've gone to the wrong poll site," explained Melanie Williard, Clerk-Treasurer in Madison.

Ken Benion, Huntsville's Clerk Treasurer, says they've already sent notices to people who are affected.
