Election Preps in Full Swing

Thousands of ballots are waiting for you at the Houston County Courthouse before they make their way to different polling places, complete with presidential candidates, congressional candidates, and all lined up and ready for you.

But are you ready for them?

Most importantly, you should make sure you're voting in the right place.

Luke Cooley says, "If you're registered to vote, you have to go to the place where you're registered. If you go to the wrong place, they will send you somewhere else, and if you sign that affidavit for another ballot at that polling place you will be committing perjury. I'll look you in the eye and tell you, I'm turning you over to the D.A."

And while taking a long time in the booth won't amount to perjury it will add to the time everyone spends waiting in line on Tuesday. Many know already about amendment one, to re-establish a rainy day money fund for schools in the state. But there are other amendments on the ballot that might slow voters down.

Probate Judge Luke Cooley says, "You don't know what the politics are for Chilton County and it may be something that the people want and you're voting no, so better to stay out of their business."

Polls open across Houston county Tuesday @ 7 and will close at 7pm
