Chapman: September is National Voter Registration Month

Secretary of State Beth Chapman today joins fellow members of the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) in reminding citizens that September is National Voter Registration Month. Chapman and her staff are working with election officials across Alabama to make eligible voters aware of registration deadlines and requirements for the November 6 general election, as well as promoting state resources to help with the registration process.

While the deadline for an election is always eleven days before an election, it is never too early to register to vote. To be eligible to vote, a person must be a US citizen who resides in Alabama, at least 18 years old on or before Election Day, not been barred from voting due to a disqualifying felony conviction and not been declared mentally incompetent by a court.

“There are many elections between now and November, including some municipal runoff elections, the special constitutional election on September 18th, and a few special elections;” said Chapman.  “Make sure you are registered to vote.  If you’re already registered and need to update your information, now is the time to make those changes.”

The nation’s secretaries of state established September as National Voter Registration Month to encourage voter participation and increase awareness of state requirements and deadlines for voting.

For more information on voter registration options and deadlines, please visit or contact the Board of Registrars office in your county.
