The polls are open from 7AM to 7PM. Elected officials take office November 3, 2008.
For Huntsville Mayor – Tommy Battle. Note that in last week’s mayoral debate, Battle announced that he supported Wayne Parker for Congress. [EDIT: I realize that Battle may have been coy when he said "I support Parker" - maybe I'm reading too much into his comment, but he has attended GOP events for about a year...] I like Mayor Spencer but IMO she’s been resting on her laurels for the past few years [EDIT: Note that Mayor Spencer implicitly endorsed Senator Sessions when she said that the next Mayor would have to work with Sens. Shelby and Sessions].
For City Council District 5 – Richard Gipson. Will Culver is his opponent.
For School Board District 1 – no opinion. Pat King versus Laurie McCaulley (State PTA President).
For School Board District 5 – Susan Currie. Alta Morrison is her opponent.
