Register to Vote (or change your registration)

Click here for an Alabama voter registration form you can fill out on line and then print for mailing to the board of registrars. If you are a resident of another state, click here to get a national voter registration form from the FEC.

If you have changed your residence within the county where you are registered, you may go to your old polling place (the one for your former residence), fill out a change of address form, and vote there. Section 8(e) of the National Voter Registration Act and Alabama Administrative Code 820-2-2-.13:

820-2-2-.13 Fail-Safe Voting.

(1) A registrant who has moved from an address in the area covered by one polling place to an address covered by a second polling place within the same Board of Registrar's jurisdiction and who has failed to notify the Board of Registrars of the change of address prior to the date of an election shall be permitted to correct the voting records with the registrant's new address and vote at the registrant's former polling place.

(2) In the event that an individual appears at a polling place on election day to vote and asserts to have registered to vote pursuant to Section 17-4-250, paragraphs (b), (c), (d), (e), and (f), Code of Ala. 1975, but the individual's name does not appear on the official poll list, the individual shall be permitted to cast a challenge ballot and submit a new voter registration form at the polling precinct. Voter registration forms shall be made available at all polling places for this purpose.
