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.
