Did you miss the last election?

"I missed the voter registration cutoff for this election but I want to vote next time! How do I get registered?"

We hear this a lot. Don't let another election slip up on you. Here's how to register to vote in future elections... Download a registration form and mail to the Jefferson County Registrar (JeffCo residents) or Shelby County Registrar (Shelby Co residents), OR register at one of these locations. The AL Secretary of State says you can "fill out and submit voter registration forms at all state and/or county offices that provide public assistance. In Alabama, public assistance offices, such as Medicaid, WIC, and DHR, must distribute voter registration forms, provide assistance in completing the forms if necessary, and accept such forms."

Have you moved since you last voted? If so, register with your new address.
Are you sure you're registered? Check here to check your registration status and polling place or call the Jefferson County Registrar at 205 325-5550. Shelby County residents call the Shelby County Board of Registrars at 205 669-3913.
