Secretary of State John H. Merrill Issues Reminder on Crossover Voting


Thursday, June 18, 2020 – MONTGOMERY – As we approach another Runoff Election, it is important to keep in mind the State’s Crossover Voting Law, which has been in effect since 2017. Voters who cast a ballot in the Primary Election may only vote in that same party’s Runoff Election.  

Voters who did not participate in the March 3, 2020 Primary Election or who voted strictly on Constitutional Amendments alone are still able to vote in the July 14 Primary Runoff Election for the party of their choosing.

In addition, Alabamians will have until Monday, June 29 to register to vote and until Thursday, July 9 to submit an absentee ballot application.

If returning by hand, absentee ballots must be delivered to the Absentee Election Manager no later than the close of business Monday, July 13. If mailing, absentee ballots must be postmarked no later than Monday, July 13.

For questions or concerns, please contact the Office of the Secretary of State at (334) 242-7200.
