There are several categories of reasons listed on the Absentee Ballot Application. Because of current public health concerns, Alabama citizens may choose the option which reads:

“I have a physical illness or infirmity that prevents my attendance at the polls.”

Note that selection of the above reason requires a copy of your valid form of photo ID. Upon receipt of your completed and signed application, a ballot will be mailed to you.

Note: Absentee ballots require two stamps.

Applications specific to other Alabama Counties are available at the Alabama Secretary of State website, as are addresses for Absentee Election Managers in other counties.
