We’ve just opened an email that is being forwarded throughout the city of Birmingham this afternoon. It was sent by the Cooper for Mayor campaign:

As widely reported many Birmingham voters were disenfranchised on October 9th as they tried to cast their ballot in the mayoral election.  Right now, only 174 votes separate Patrick from a run-off.

Accordingly, please pass this information along to all Birmingham voters:

– If you requested and submitted a provisional ballot at a polling site YOU MUST GO TO BOARD OF REGISTRARS AT THE JEFFERSON COUNTY COURT HOUSE BY FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12th at 5PM.  If the voter fails to provide identification to the Board on the Friday following the election, the ballot will NOT be counted.

-If you requested and never received an absentee ballot for the October 9th Mayoral Election, you can still vote if you GO TO THE BOARD OF REGISTRARS AT THE JEFFERSON COUNTY COURT HOUSE BY FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12th at 5PM.

REMEMBER TO BRING PROPER IDENTIFICATION (drivers license including address and telephone number).

We need every vote!

If you have any questions please contact the Cooper for Mayor Campaign at 488-9641 or the Jefferson County Board of Registrars at 325-5550.  Also, please let us know if you did submit a provisional ballot so we may help protect your vote.

As we said earlier today, it’s about to get interesting.

If in fact Langford is the new mayor, it's going to be worse than interesting...Birmingham is going to become a Christian city and take ten steps back. I would rather my dog have been elected mayor.
