Secretary Merrill Encourages the Checking of Absentee Ballot Statuses Online


Thursday, September 24, 2020 – MONTGOMERY – With the anticipated increase of absentee ballots being cast for the November 3 General Election, Secretary of State John H. Merrill encourages voters to check the status of their ballot online.

“Through using our online portal, Alabama voters can check when their absentee ballot was sent out by the county, when their absentee ballot was returned to the county, and whether the ballot was accepted or rejected,” stated Secretary Merrill. “In cooperation with local election officials, we have worked to provide a transparent system that allows Alabamians the opportunity to check the status of their ballot – further ensuring that their vote was counted and their voice was heard.”

Please note that this information is contingent upon the uploading of information by the county Absentee Election Manager’s who are working diligently to see that voters can participate safely and securely in the electoral process.

Questions about the status of your absentee ballot application should be directed to your county Absentee Election Manager’s Office.
