Record Voter Registration Numbers In Alabama!


October 31, 2016 - MONTGOMERY - The deadline for Alabamians to register to vote has passed. As of today we have registered more than 584,252 making the total number of registered voters in the state a record 3,330,802 Alabamians.

Thanks to initiatives like online voter registration, the ERIC mailing, a new partnership with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, and many more, Secretary Merrill’s team has collaborated with the people of Alabama to register the largest number of new voters in state history.

“When we took Office in January of 2015, we committed to make sure every eligible U.S. citizen that is a resident of Alabama be registered to vote and have a valid photo id. With the help of our very capable team and the people of Alabama we have made great strides to accomplish this goal, and for that I say thank you,” said Secretary Merrill.

Merrill continued, “On November 8 don’t forget to bring your valid photo id, and if you need one call us at (334) 242-7200! We want to see you at the polls!”
