Your vote this fall is important to Alabama! Our state is turning blue but we need your help. We have several races where you can make a difference, including Walt Maddox for Governor and Judge Bob Vance for Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.
Even if you voted from abroad in the past, if you haven't yet requested your ballot this year, you still need to do so to make sure you can vote. Just go to votefromabroad.org, fill in the Federal request form, print, sign and send it in to your local election office here in Alabama.
On behalf of the Alabama Democratic Party I thank you for your commitment to voting!
Nancy Worley, Chair
Alabama Democratic Party
Your deadlines are coming up. Don't forget:
REGISTER to vote from abroad by Monday, October 22. Your registration form must be sent by postal mail, postmarked by Oct. 22. The registration form will also request your ballot. We recommend that you request to have your ballot delivered to you by email, and that you send your registration/request form asap to ensure you have enough time to return your ballot.
REQUEST your overseas absentee ballot by Thursday, November 1. Your request form must be sent by postal mail and received by Nov. 1. We recommend that you request to have your ballot delivered to you by email, and that you send your request form asap to ensure you have enough time to return your ballot.
RETURN your ballot by Tuesday, November 6. If you request that your ballot be sent by email, you may be able to return your completed ballot by email. Your election official will provide more information with your ballot. Otherwise, your ballot must be sent by postal mail, postmarked by Election Day and received by Tuesday, November 13, 12 noon.
All overseas voters may vote in Alabama state and local elections as well as elections for federal offices (US House and US Senate races).
Note: When you fill in your ballot request form, be aware that selecting “I intend to return” rather than “my return is uncertain” may contribute towards establishing yourself as a tax resident in your voting state. Because the legal requirements to establish "residence" or "domicile" for tax purposes are determined by state law and the specific facts of your life, before you note that you intend to return on your form you may consider seeking advice on these matters from your tax professional.
