Newton County officials are reminding citizens that today’s elections are municipal elections only. There are no Newton County elections today, and all county polling locations are closed. County elections will be held in 2020.

Voters must reside in the city limits of Covington, Oxford or Porterdale in order to vote. There are no contested elections in Mansfield or Newborn.
