Vote by Absentee Ballot

Due to COVID-19, the Secretary of State is allowing Alabama voters concerned about the coronavirus to cast an absentee ballot. Voters filling out an application for an absentee ballot should check the box that says, “I have a physical illness or infirmity which prevents my attendance at the polls. [ID REQUIRED]” to receive their absentee ballot.


For absentee ballots regarding the November 3rd General (Presidential) Election, please contact the Madison County Circuit Clerk at www.madisoncountycircuitclerk.org or call 256-532-3380.


In a municipal (non-presidential) election, you may vote absentee if:

  • you will be absent from the county on election day
  • you are ill or have a physical disability that prevents a trip to the polling place
  • you are a registered Alabama voter who is temporarily living outside the county (such as a member of the Armed Forces, a voter employed outside of the United States, a college student, or a spouse or child of such a person)
  • you are an appointed election officer or poll watcher at a polling place other than your regular polling place
  • you work a required shift – 10 hours or more – that coincides with polling hours


There are currently no municipal elections scheduled through the end of 2020.
