Alabama doesn't want anyone to have to make a choice between voting and partying:
Alabama is one of 24 states voting on Feb. 5. Early voting will also be available on Jan. 30 in Mobile and Baldwin counties to avoid conflicts with Fat Tuesday, which falls on Feb. 5.
Written and compiled by staff writers and editors, GOVERNING View is an on-the-ground, and sometimes behind-the-scenes, look at the topics we're covering in print and online. From notes on what's up in statehouses, county courthouses and city halls, to encounters with people, places and things, GOVERNING View is a window into the side of state and local government you don't always see.
