The alignement people should fix that. That's part of what an alignment does.

I had a pull to the left if I let go of the steering wheel, so I would have to hold it slightly to the right to go straight. New tires fixed it. Mine were worn all goofy when I got the car.

Check your tires pressures! A low tire will cause a pull, and strange tire wear.

Bring the car back to the shop that did the alignment, and tell them that they forgot to true the steering. I had a shop forget to do this before and they took care of it. A lot of times all they want to make sure is that both of your tires are pointed in the same direction.
