Alabama’s Primary Election Today: Make Plans To Vote

Ballot_box400x225

TENNESSEE VALLEY (WHNT) – It’s time to vote.  The 2014 Alabama Republican and Democratic primaries are today.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.  Remember – you must bring a valid photo ID to vote.  Simply bringing your voter registration card is no longer good enough.

Acceptable forms of photo ID include a driver’s license, college ID or federally issued ID.

When you go to vote, you’ll be asked to choose a Republican or Democratic ballot.  You cannot pick both — you must select one.  Check this link for sample ballots for north Alabama counties.

Also, there are important changes to six precinct locations in Madison County.  This will impact nearly 17,000 voters.  Affected voters should have received new voter registration cards from the Board of Registrars.  If you’re not certain where you vote, check AlabamaVotes.gov to pull up your polling precinct.

Check local and state election results tonight on WHNT News 19 and WHNT.com.  We’ll have crews in each north Alabama county to bring you the very latest information soon after the polls close.

Mark these dates down while you’re at it – so you’ll be ready to vote in elections the rest of the year.  July 15 is the date of the Primary Runoff Election, August 26 is the date for Municipal Elections and November 4 is the General Election.
