Residents of Havana ventured out to the Havana Public Library to cast their vote for Town Council today.

However, they weren't the only ones to show up to the polls.

"I believe that the weather will hinder a few of the voters from coming out, but I believe that the people will be proactive and come out and vote today. I believe in the citizens of Havana. I believe that they will come out and vote. They understand what's at stake," said Decorkus Allen, candidate for Havana Town Council.

Also on the ballot today was a non-binding straw poll.

Allen says that he believes whatever the citizens want, they should get.

It's raining, it's pouring... but that didn't stop voters and other residents from coming out today.

Some Quincy residents braved the rain to come to the City Hall to vote. Others stood outside in the rain since 7am to show support for their candidate.

"The weather is definitely going to play a part in the dedicated people that want to come out and see the change. The dedicated voters and even the non-voters that come out and support the people that they want to see in office to get the things that they want to get done," said Leonard Newton, Quincy resident.

Municipal elections were held today. The primary elections for Quincy will be held on August 26th.

Elections in Gadsden County tomorrow will determine new leaders for some cities in the county.

Voters will also weigh in on whether or not alcohol should be sold on Sundays.

Three elections will be held tomorrow in Gadsden County. Voters will elect three new City Council members. Three of those members are up for re-election, and they've served on the Board for at least 10 years.

What's interesting about this vote tomorrow in Havana is voters will weigh in on whether alcohol should be served within the city limits on Sundays. Currently, that's not allowed. This vote would see if voters would want alcohol to be served between 1-6 pm at restaurants with a liquor license.

This is just a straw pull; results are non-binding. This is just a way for city leaders to get an idea of what voters think.

Also, Quincy will elect a new Commissioner tomorrow. That election will be held at Quincy City Hall.

Gretna's new Commissioner election will be at Gretna City Hall.

Polls will be open from 7am - 7pm.
