When Alabama voters head to their polling places on July 14, it will be unlike any other time in history.
That’s because coronavirus precautions will be part of the voting process.
The Alabama Secretary of State’s Office has “encouraged the purchasing of masks, gloves, disinfectant spray, cleaning supplies, hand sanitizer, alcohol wipes, and professional cleaning services to prepare and return polling places back to their safe and sanitary pre-election condition.”
Many North Alabama counties have done this.

In Alabama, there are two qualifications you have to meet to vote in a runoff.
If you voted in the primary election, you can only vote in the runoff for the same political party you chose in the first election.
If you did not vote at all in the primary election, you can vote in the runoff of any party of your choice. If you didn't vote in the March primary, click HERE to make sure you are registered to vote.
