November will be here soon!

Are you new to the area? Have you moved recently? Did you recently turn 18 years of age? If you've answered yes to any of these questions then I have another one for you...have you registered to vote or updated your current registration?

The ability to vote exists as one of the most important Constitutional Rights available to the American public. Not only is it an important way to voice your opinions regarding elected leaders and overall policies, but voting also helps you decide your own future by electing a person who might reflect your own views. As a public institution funded by your tax dollars, we at the Emmet O'Neal Library urge you to register to vote or update your voter registration as needed and use your vote to support your local public library!

For your convenience, the library provides voter registration postcards free of charge. Come in and get one today!

For questions about your voter registration, your local polling place, absentee ballots and more, contact the Jefferson County Board of Registrars(click the link to visit their website):

Jefferson County Courthouse - (205) 325-5550
Bessemer Courthouse - (205) 481-4105
Center Point Satellite - (205) 856-8808
Southern Satellite - (205) 916-2720

Happy Voting!
