Opinion | Vote November 8th

All Alabama polling locations will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on election day.


Next week, Alabama voters will return to the polls to vote in the General Election on Tuesday, November 8. This summer, voters went to the polls to slate party nominees for the local, state, congressional, senatorial, and gubernatorial races. We appreciate your time and your dedication to our state’s future by showing up for our primary and run-off elections. Now, it’s time for Alabamians to make their voices heard again at the ballot box and vote for our state’s next group of leaders. 

Montgomery has a storied legacy of securing and safeguarding our sacred right to vote. No one can take that away from us, and we certainly can’t let it go to waste. In this year’s important election, it’s our turn to carry the torch of freedom and keep it burning bright long into the future. It’s up to us to recognize our civic responsibility and exercise our democracy. We have some very important choices to make for our communities, our cities, and our state. Join me in making our voices heard on Tuesday. 

Whether it’s top-of-the-ticket races like the U.S. Senate or Governor, or local municipal or county-level positions in our communities, this 2022 General Election will have a major long-term impact on our everyday lives. We’re choosing the people that will influence everything from public education, crime, and the safety of our neighborhoods to the future of business development and job growth in our communities. It’s vital that we turn out to vote on November 8. 

The Montgomery Election Center offers sample ballots so voters can get to know their candidates. Before heading to the polls, I recommend familiarizing yourself with the nominees in each race so you can make the best decision for yourself, your family, and your community. 

Monday, November 7th, is the last day to return Absentee ballots by hand. If returning by mail, absentee ballots must be received by 12 p.m. on Tuesday, November 8. 

Remember, you must bring a valid form of photo identification when voting in any election. Please visit the Montgomery Election Center’s website at or download our mobile app to find acceptable forms of photo I.D., to view sample ballots, to locate your polling location, and to view polling precinct wait times on election day.

All Alabama polling locations will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on election day. I’ll see you at the polls on Tuesday!
