The Alabama Secretary of State’s Office joins fellow members of the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) to encourage citizens to participate in National Voter Registration Month.

In 2002, September was established as National Voter Registration Month by NASS as a non-partisan means to encourage voter participation and increase awareness about state voting requirements and deadlines. National Voter Registration Day will occur on September 28, 2021.

To register to vote in Alabama, you must be a U.S. citizen and an Alabama resident, who is 18 years or older on or by Election Day, and the prospective voter cannot be convicted of a disqualifying felony nor declared mentally incompetent. The deadline to register before the 2022 Primary Election is May 9, 2022.
