The principles of our Representative Democracy ensure that all US citizens eligible to vote can elect representatives to form a congress and conduct the business of government for the people.
Simply put, your vote is your voice. You hold the power in your hands to help choose the leaders and laws that shape every aspects of our lives in here in Alabama. But your voice is only heard when you commit to stay informed and participate in elections, particularly at the state and local level.
It only takes a few minutes to register to vote, verify your voter registration, update your address or name, or find your polling place on the Alabama Secretary of State's Alabama Votes website (see our direct links below).
As Democrats, we want every citizen to vote in every election to ensure that our democracy works for all of us.
