Alabama: Voting at the Polls on Election Day

Poll Hours:7:00 AM-7:00 PM

    Beginning with the June 3, 2014 primary election, Act 2011-673 requires an Alabama voter to have a specific type of photo identification at the polls in order to vote. If a voter does not have one of the approved forms of photo ID as stated in the law, then he or she may receive a free Alabama photo voter ID from various locations including the Secretary of State's Office, local county board of registrars' offices, and a mobile location to be determined by the Secretary of State's Office.

    Valid ID at the Polls

    • Valid Driver's License
    • Valid Non-driver ID
    • Valid Alabama Photo Voter ID
    • Valid State Issued ID (Alabama or any other state)
    • Valid Federal Issued ID
    • Valid US Passport
    • Valid Employee ID from Federal Government, State of Alabama, County Government, Municipality, Board, Authority, or other entity of this state
    • Valid student or employee ID from a college or university in the State of Alabama (including postgraduate technical or professional schools)
    • Valid Military ID
    • Valid Tribal ID

    If a voter possesses any of these forms of ID, he/she is not eligible to receive a free Alabama photo voter ID card. The voter must bring one of these photo IDs to the polls on Election Day or place a copy of the ID in absentee ballot materials.

    A voter who is required to present valid photo identification but who does not do so will be allowed to vote a provisional ballot as provided for by law.

    In addition, a voter who does not have a valid photo ID in his or her possession at the polls shall be permitted to vote if the individual is positively identified by two election officials as a voter on the poll list who is eligible to vote and the election officials sign a sworn affidavit so stating.

    For more information, download the Alabama Photo Voter ID Guide.

      College Student Voting In Alabama

      If you attend school in Alabama, you can establish residency in Alabama if you have a present intention to remain at your Alabama school address for the time being and to make it your principal home.Any other interpretation of the residency laws is unconstitutional.

      If you leave your Alabama home to attend school, you are expressly allowed to register to vote using your Alabama address.While registering to vote in another state is not automatically considered an abandonment of your Alabama residency, some judges or officials may view it as such.If you have established residency in another state and are moving back to Alabama with the intent to reside there, you will have to submit the registration form to re-register at home.

      Movers and Address Change: Alabama

      Under federal law, if you move within 30 days of a presidential election, you are allowed to vote for President and Vice President in your former state of residence, either in person or by absentee ballot.

      If you moved to Alabama from another state, you must register to vote in Alabama to be able to vote. If a voter moves to another county within the state, he or she must re-register in the new county of residence.

      A voter should immediately notify voter registration officials (Board of Registrars) of any changes, such as a change in name or address. The law requires that any voter whose name or address is not correct on the voter list must provide current information before being allowed to vote. The form to update registration information will be available at all polling places on election day.
