FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Tuesday, January 21, 2020 – MONTGOMERY – As the March 3 Primary Election approaches, Secretary of State John H. Merrill reminds Alabama voters of their role in the prevention and reporting of voter fraud:
“In order to protect the integrity of our elections, it is imperative that voters play their part in observing and reporting any irregularities or inconsistencies at the polling place.
Through visiting StopVoterFraudNow.com, Alabamians can report suspected election fraud or campaign finance violations.
Once reports are submitted to the Office of the Secretary of State, members of the Legal and Elections divisions will review the information, and if necessary, contact the person who submitted the report for additional information.
All reports of alleged violations are kept completely confidential.
Since I took office on January 19, 2015, one of my primary goals has been keeping Alabama elections free and fair. We have consistently worked to ensure that votes are counted in the way the voter intended, and we have protected our elections from actors looking to influence the outcome. Furthermore, the state’s electronic campaign finance reporting system, which keeps candidates, Political Action Committees, and Principal Campaign Committees transparent and accountable to the people of Alabama, has been maintained by our office.
The Office of the Secretary of State will continue to see that Alabamians have the opportunity to participate in honest, impartial, and just elections.
