The City of Birmingham mailed out thousands of cards like this one to tell voters where their polling place is located.

Polls open for voting Tuesday 7 am to 7 pm as city voters cast their ballots for mayor, city council and school board.

With 89 candidates on the ballot, including 12 running for mayor, the field is wide.  If a runoff is needed in any race, it will be on October 3.
