HOOVER — The city of Hoover is mailing notices to residents to let them know their designated voting locations for the Aug. 28 municipal election.

All registered voters should receive such a notice within the next few days, said Hoover City Clerk Margie Handley.

Because the city council’s seven seats are numbered at large seats, the city is not broken up into voting districts — rather, Hoover voters can vote in all city council races.

Handley said some Hoover residents will find themselves voting at new locations, because in city elections, all voting locations must be within city limits.

In other elections, such as national or statewide elections, some Hoover residents actually vote at voting locations outside the city limits.

The voting locations for the Aug. 28 election include: Hoover Park and Recreation Center, at 600 Municipal Drive; Hoover Public Library, at 200 Municipal Drive; St. Peter’s Catholic Church, at 2061 Patton Chapel Road; Oakmont Presbyterian Church, at 1817 Patton Chapel Road; Shades Crest Baptist Church, at 452 Park Ave.; Bluff Park United Methodist Church, at 733 Valley St.; Prince of Peace Catholic Church, at 4600 Preserve Parkway; Hunter Street Baptist Church, at 2600 John Hawkins Parkway; Riverchase Church of Christ, at 1868 Montgomery Highway; Hoover Fire Station No. VII, at 100 Inverness Parkway; Hoover Fire Station No. VIII, at 121 Village St.; Greystone Farms Clubhouse, at 1000 Farmhouse Road; and the Ross Bridge Welcome Center, at 2101 Grand Ave.

Absentee balloting will be held at Hoover City Hall, at 100 Municipal Lane.

If necessary, a run-off election will be held Oct. 9.

Handley said if residents do not receive information about their voting locations in the mail, they should contact her at 444-7500.
