The Alabama State Canvassing Board has officially certified the results of the November 8 election, which included several constitutional amendments now in effect.
In a five-minute process, the Board certified the election results, with all the members of the Board voting in favor.
The Board, comprised of representatives of Gov. Kay Ivey, Attorney General Steve Marshall, and Secretary of State John H. Merrill, met on Monday to certify the election results, as it has done after every state or federal election.
Included in that certification are the constitutional amendments and the proposed Constitution of 2022 voted on by the people of Alabama. Ivey issued a proclamation Monday saying those amendments and the Constitution of Alabama of 2022 are now in effect.
The November 8 midterms saw 10 constitutional amendments, all passing handily.
"I am once again grateful to the voters, poll workers and local election officials in all 67 of Alabama's counties who participated in this election cycle to ensure Alabama's safe, secure and transparent election," Merrill said.
Senator-Elect Katie Britt took to Twitter to celebrate the official certification of her landslide victory to take over for the outgoing Richard Shelby.
