Alabama Voter Information

Hello, voter! Below, find everything you need to know to make your voice heard — including how to register, update your registration, get a mail ballot, vote early, and vote on Election Day.

Registering to vote: The deadline to update your registration is October 19, 2020. You can do that by using the tool on the homepage or at the Secretary of State’s website.

How to vote by mail: To vote by mail, visit for the absentee ballot request form. According to the Secretary of State, voters can select “I have a physical illness or infirmity which prevents my attendance at the polls” as a valid reason to vote absentee during the COVID-19 outbreak.

You will need to print your form and mail it to your county’s Absentee Election Manager by October 29.

Your mail ballot must be received by November 2 at 5:00 pm (if hand-delivered) or November 3 at 12:00 noon (if mailed). Many more voters are expected to use mail ballots this year, so make sure you leave plenty of time to request and return your ballot! 

Other options to vote: You can also vote in person on Election Day, November 3! Polls are open 7:00 am – 7:00 pm. Be sure to bring your photo ID!
