Who Can Register To Vote in Alabama?

Voter registration is governed in Alabama by state law and the federal National Voter Registration Act (commonly known as "motor voter").

For information on the National Voter Registration Act and voter registration opportunities under the Act, please click here.

To register to vote in the State of Alabama, an individual must meet the following qualifications:

  • Be a United States Citizen
  • Reside in Alabama
  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Have not been convicted of a disqualifying felony (or have rights restored)
  • Have not been legally declared "mentally incompetent" by a court

When To Register

  • Citizens may register to vote all year. However, voter registration is closed during the 10 days prior to any election and on election day so that the voter list can be compiled for the election. Beginning with the 2014 General Election, voter registration will close 14 days prior to an election. Voter registration applications must be postmarked, hand-delivered to the Board of Registrars, or submitted at a participating agency-based voter registration location no later than the registration deadline for an election.

Keep your voter registration record up to date

  • 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.

Restoration Of Voting Rights

  • An individual who is barred from registering and voting by reason of a disqualifying felony conviction may request to have his or her voting rights restored by applying for a Certificate of Eligibility. An individual may qualify for a “Certificate of Eligibility” to vote if he or she has fulfilled all terms of the sentence for the disqulifying felony conviction. For further information, contact the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles at 334-242-8700.

  • You may download the State of Alabama Postcard Voter Registration Application from the Secretary Of State site. The form can be printed on your printer, filled out, and then mailed into your local voter registration officials. Click here for more information.

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.

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.
