Alabama Provisional Voting

A provisional ballot is voted the same as any other ballot except you must sign an affidavit attesting to your eligibility to vote. If your name is not on the poll list, the provisional ballot will be counted only if the county board of registrars is able to confirm, after the election, that you are a duly qualified elector of the county.

When you cast a provisional ballot because you did not have proper identification at the polling place, you have until 5:00 pm on the Monday following the election to submit the ID to the board of registrars. If proper ID is submitted by this deadline, the ballot will be counted. You may also cast a provisional ballot if you did not receive a requested absentee ballot or did not vote the absentee ballot.

To find out if your provisional ballot was counted, use your state's provisional ballot tool.
