It appears that the importance of voting in local and state elections is becoming clearer, and people have more of a desire for their voices to be heard as more Tuscaloosa residents are taking interest in politics and understanding how the branches of government work.

In order for informed decisions to be made, citizens must first know not only which district in which they live but also who represents them at the table.

Now, if there are issues in your district which need to be addressed, contact your council person.
