Secretary Chapman Announces State of Alabama’s Official Election Center Website

MONTGOMERY- Alabama’s Chief Elections Official, Secretary of State Beth Chapman, announced a new state -wide elections service developed over the past two months and launched today by her office which is the State of Alabama’s Official Election Center. The new website  provides essential and helpful information at the finger-tips of Alabama’s voters.


“My staff and I are honored to bring the Secretary of State’s Office and Alabama’s elections into the 21st Century and provide every citizen with valuable information to assist them in voting,” Chapman said. “The Secretary of State’s Office is the State of Alabama’s Official Election Center and is proud to provide important information to the people of all sixty-seven counties.”


Chapman says many of Alabama voters’ questions are the same:  if they are registered, where they vote, times the polls are open, how to receive an absentee ballot and their need for a sample ballot.  This website is a quick and easy way to answer all those questions and more on or before Election Day.  The website will also enable organizations and advocacy groups to aid voters who may have questions regarding their polling place, their registration status, and other pertinent information.


The website is a one-stop-shop for Alabama elections information.  Should a voter find that the information contains incorrect information, they can call their local Board of Registrars office in order to change or correct that information.


The user friendly website will be linked directly from the Secretary of State’s website and citizens can call the voter hotline at 1-800-274-VOTE should they have any questions.  Please visit for more information.
