Mayor and council runoffs set Tuesday in many Alabama cities
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Voters in dozens of Alabama cities will go back to the polls Tuesday to settle races for mayor and city council posts.
The election is the runoff for posts in which no candidate won a majority during August’s municipal voting. Among the more than a dozen cities that will be settling mayoral posts are Anniston, Daphne, Decatur, Enterprise, Florence, Prichard and Selma. All races are officially nonpartisan.
In Decatur, incumbent Tab Bowling is trying to become the first mayor to win consecutive terms in the Tennessee Valley city since 1992.
Alabama’s largest cities elect their officials on different cycles.
