AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - Following a turbulent political year for Alabama, voters in Lee County will head to the polls on Tuesday for a special election to fill the vacant seat formerly held by Mike Hubbard of Auburn, the ousted Alabama speaker of the house convicted of 12 ethics charges.
Going door to door, passing out fliers, making calls, and shaking hands has been the life of the four candidates racing to fill the Alabama House District 79 seat.
Attorney Brett Smith's campaign centers on making Alabama a better place for his young daughter and family, along with all families in the Auburn area.
Veteran firefighter Joe Lovvern says he's focused on positivity, with both campaigning and looking towards growth for East Alabama.
Polls open Tuesday, Sept. 13 at 7 a.m. and will close at 7 p.m. CST.
