Hi, what are you looking for?


Deadline for registering to vote is today

Election in United States of America. Voter holds envelope in hand above vote ballot. USA flags in background. Democracy concept.

Today is the final day to register to vote in the party primaries set for next month.

Those who still have not registered can do so online through the Secretary of State’s website.

Alternatively, you can still register by mail, and you can always physically register at the board of registrars in your voting area.

Alabama’s election laws require a photo identification to vote. While the most common ID used is a driver’s license, a variety of identifications can be used:

  • Valid Nondriver ID
  • Valid Alabama Photo Voter ID card
  • Valid State Issued ID (Alabama or any other state)
  • Valid Federal Issued ID
  • Valid US Passport
  • Valid Employee ID from Federal Government, State of Alabama, County, Municipality, Board, or other entity of this state
  • Valid student or employee ID from a public or private college or university in the State of Alabama (including postgraduate technical or professional schools)
  • Valid Military ID
  • Valid Tribal ID

Alabama also gives out free photo IDs specifically for voting. The form can be found on the Secretary of State’s website.

The party primaries encompass many offices, including all statewide positions and seats in the Legislature.
