Now that we’re starting up the election swing to decide not only our next President, but many other local statewide initiatives, it’s important to put into context the types of decisions that will be made in the coming years.

Who makes the decisions? Not the people getting elected. It’s the voters.

Specifically, we wanted to know which cities have the highest number of liberal voters in the Heart Of Dixie?

The cities with the highest percentage of voters who voted Democrat and gave the most to liberals where named the most liberal cities in the state.

How we determined the most liberal cities in Alabama for 2019

We started by making a list of every city in Alabama over 5,000 people based on the 2013-2017 American Community Survey (The most recent data). That left us with 103 cities and towns.

We then measured the voting record and donation data to determine which places lean the most rightward in their allegiances by:

  1. Percentage Of Registered Democrats
  2. # Of Contributions To Democrats Per Capita
  3. $ Amount Contributed To Democrats Per Capita

Next, we ranked each city from 1 to 103 for each of the criteria where number one was the most liberal.

The winner, Tuskegee, is “The Most liberal City in Alabama For 2019”.

Let’s go through these liberal places, shall we?
