The Alabama Secretary of State reminded Alabama voters there are only 41 days left to apply for an absentee ballot by mail for the primary election. Voters will have an additional two days to apply for an absentee ballot in person.
Absentee ballot applications can be downloaded online or requested by visiting or calling the local Absentee Election Manager’s office. Voters may also contact the Secretary of State’s Elections Division at (334) 242-7210 to request an absentee ballot application.
Keep in mind the following dates regarding absentee voting:
May 17, 2022 is the last day that absentee ballot applications can be returned by mail.
May 19, 2022 is the last day that absentee ballot applications can be returned by hand.
May 23, 2022 is the last day to return absentee ballots by hand to the Absentee Election Manager.
May 24, 2022 at noon is the deadline for absentee ballots to be returned by mail to the Absentee Election Manager no later than noon.
Voters who are eligible to vote pursuant to the Uniformed and Overseas Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA) will have until May 24, 2022 to postmark an absentee ballot.
If a voter fails to turn in or request an absentee ballot, they may still vote in person at their assigned polling place on May 24.
If you have any questions or concerns, contact the Secretary of State’s Elections Division at 334-242-7210.
