Polls are open across Alabama from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 12 as voters decide who will represent the state in the U.S. Senate for the remainder of Jeff Sessions' unexpired term. Click here to find your polling location.
Links to sample ballots are listed below. Voters in Baldwin County and Washington County will decide tax proposals in addition to the U.S. Senate special election. Those counties have separate ballots that reflect the specific ballot questions. Voters in other counties will use the ballot that shows only the Senate race.
As a reminder, you must have a valid photo ID in order to vote in Alabama. Acceptable forms of photo ID (information from AL Secretary of State):
A voter can use any of the following forms of photo ID at the polls starting June 3, 2014:
• Valid Driver's License
• Valid Non-driver ID
• Valid Alabama Photo Voter ID
• Valid State Issued ID (Alabama or any other state)
• Valid Federal Issued ID
• Valid US Passport
• Valid Employee ID from Federal Government, State of Alabama, County Government, Municipality, Board, Authority, or other entity of this state
• Valid student or employee ID from a college or university in the State of Alabama (including postgraduate technical or professional schools)
• Valid Military ID
• Valid Tribal ID
If a voter possesses any of these forms of ID, he/she is not eligible to receive a free Alabama photo voter ID card. The voter must bring one of these photo IDs to the polls on Election Day or place a copy of the ID in absentee ballot materials.
A voter who is required to present valid photo identification but who does not do so will be allowed to vote a provisional ballot as provided for by law.
In addition, a voter who does not have a valid photo ID in his or her possession at the polls shall be permitted to vote if the individual is positively identified by two election officials as a voter on the poll list who is eligible to vote and the election officials sign a sworn affidavit so stating.
