Know Your Rights:
In an effort to inform individuals with disabilities about the 2020 presidential primary candidates, our friends at the Disability Rights Center in New Hampshire requested that each campaign answer five disability related questions. You can view candidate responses by clicking on this link.
If you’re at least 18 years of age and meet the other eligibility requirements for the State of Alabama, please take some time to review our Alabama Voter’s Guide from The Secretary of State's Office. It provides you with registration requirements, when to register, where and how to register, dates and much more.
Alabama voters can now register to vote online. Voters can submit their registration form online at www.alabamavotes.gov, but the registration will require a valid Alabama drivers license or state-issued photo ID.
