Birmingham and Mobile are both electing mayors on Tuesday.
In Birmingham, incumbent William Bell faces four challengers as he seeks his first, full four-year term. Bell originally took office after the felony conviction of former Mayor Larry Langford and then won a shortened term.
Bell is being opposed by Kamau Afrika, Patricia Bell, Stephannie Sigler Huey and Adlai Trone in a low-key municipal campaign.
In Mobile, Mayor Sam Jones is being opposed by Sandy Stimpson and Doris Brown.
