Voter Registration Deadline for Special Election

Nov 27, 2017

Alabama voters have until 11:59 p.m. this evening to register to vote in order to participate in the Dec. 12 special election for the U.S. Senate between Democratic nominee Doug Jones and Republican nominee Roy Moore.

Under state law, the last day to register is the 15th day before an election, which is today. Voters can register during normal office hours at county board of registrars' offices and other designated locations in each county. Or voters can register online until 11:59 p.m. tonight.

The deadline also applies to voters who have moved and need to update their registration on the voter rolls.

Alabama's new law banning crossover voting has no bearing on the Dec. 12 election. That law only applies to party primary runoffs.

For more information or to register online, head to the Alabama Secretary of State’s office website.
