Voters in several Shelby County municipalities will head to their respective voting places Tuesday, Aug. 23 to cast their ballots for candidates running for mayor and city council.
Hoping to get to know this year’s candidates a little better before Election Day?
The Greater Shelby County Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the South Shelby Chamber of Commerce, Montevallo Chamber of Commerce and Shelby County Newspapers, have you covered. They will be co-hosting forums prior to Election Day to help residents make the important decision of whom to vote for a little easier.
