Vote

As a blue voter in a red state, it can sometimes feel like you might have more of an impact on the outcomes by voting on the other side’s ticket. But your vote for Democrats matters. It tells people in our community that Democrats get out and vote. Which in turn, lets us know that we have supporters for future candidates in the next election. Remember:  do your part by voting blue.

I need to register to vote.


First you need to fill out a voter registration application and receive your voter identification card, visit the Alabama Secretary of State’s Website to find out more. Deadlines for voter registration are usually two full weeks prior to an election. Follow this link for full instructions, and an online form you can register with.




Can I register as a Democrat?


  • Alabama does not register by party
  • You must ask for either a Democratic or Republican ballot at the polls during Primary elections
  • There are no party specific ballots in the general election; we all use the same ballot
  • There are a lot of reasons to vote in the Democratic Primary if you’re a Democrat!
  • By state law and under penalty, you will not be able to switch party ballots between the Primary and the Runoff elections




What kind of ID do I need to vote?


Check the Secretary of State site here for the most updated info.
