Friday, February 14, 2020 – MONTGOMERY – This year, Alabamians will have the opportunity to vote in several extremely important elections that will determine their representation at the local, state, and federal level.

Alabamians can register to vote by visiting their local board of registrars, on our website “AlabamaVotes.gov,” or on the mobile app “Vote for Alabama.”
For the March 3 Primary Election, the last day to hand-deliver a voter registration form to the board of registrars is today, February 14, the last day to postmark a voter registration form is February 15, and the last day to register to vote electronically is by midnight on February 17.
Eligible Alabamians can obtain a free voter photo identification card by visiting their local board of registrars, the Office of the Secretary of State, or attending one of the mobile photo ID units in their area. The list of counties that will soon be visited can be found on our website.
“I encourage all eligible residents of Alabama to take the time to register to vote and obtain a photo ID so those who are interested will be able to participate in the electoral process!” announced Merrill.
