Secretary of State’s office registers one millionth voter in the state electronically


Yesterday morning, the Office of the Secretary of State electronically registered the one millionth voter in the state since implementation in January of 2016, bringing the state’s total number of registered voters to 3,557,172.

Secretary of State John H. Merrill has devoted much of his time in office to increasing the number of registered voters in the State of Alabama, as well as increasing voter participation in the electoral process.

“My team and I have shattered every record in the history of the state for voter registration and voter participation, and we hope these numbers will continue to rise as we head into the 2020 Election Cycle,” expressed Merrill.

Merrill introduced the idea of online voter registration when he took office in January of 2015 and had the system fully implemented in January of 2016. He has since worked to make the process easier and more efficient than ever.

“The use of our mobile app ‘Vote for Alabama’ and our website ‘’ has allowed eligible Alabamians to register with ease and convenience. I encourage all U.S. citizens who live in our state and will be 18 years of age on or before Election Day to register to vote!” encouraged Merrill.

Alabamians are also able to register to vote by visiting their local board of registrars, the Office of the Secretary of State, or one of our many mobile photo ID units. For the list of counties we will soon be visiting, please visit our website or contact our office at (334) 242-7210.
