The 2022 runoff election is Tuesday, June 21. Alabamians will vote on Democratic and Republican nominees for a range of local, state and federal offices, including the Democratic nominee for governor and the Republican nominee for a U.S. Senate seat. Voters in some districts also will decide on nominees for the state Legislature.
Have you made a plan to vote? Alabama Arise has information below about how to vote in person Tuesday.
Here’s what you need to know for Election Day:
- Check your registration and find your polling place here.
- Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. If you’re a registered voter in line by 7 p.m., stay in line! You’ll be allowed to vote.
- A valid photo ID is required to vote.
- Find your sample ballot here (by county).
- Alabamians can vote in either the Democratic or Republican primary, but not both.
- State law forbids “crossover voting” in runoff elections. People who voted in the Democratic primary will be able to vote only in the Democratic runoff. People who voted in the Republican primary will be able to vote only in the Republican runoff. Voters who participated in neither party’s primary can choose to vote in either party’s runoff.
- The crossover voting rule does not apply to the general election in November. Voters may vote for whomever they wish in the general election.
- Voters’ party choice for this year’s primary or runoff election does not bind them for future years.
- You can find more information and resources on the Alabama Secretary of State’s website.
