CULLMAN – The Democratic and Republican Primary Elections are next Tuesday, June 5. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Alabama voters have to declare a party before they cast their ballots. That means, when you show up to your polling place, you’ll have to choose to vote in either the Republican or Democratic Primary. You can’t vote in both. Important to remember is whichever party you choose on June 5 is the party you have to stick with if there happens to be a run-off election. For example, if you vote Republican on June 5, and there’s a run-off on the Democratic ticket, you can’t vote in that run-off. That rule, the crossover voting rule, only applies to primary elections. In the November general election, both parties will be on your ballot.
Also remember, all Alabama voters are required to show photo identification before voting. Types of IDs accepted are valid driver's license, valid nondriver ID, valid Alabama photo voter ID, valid state-issued ID, valid federal-issued ID, valid US passport, valid employee ID from federal government, State of Alabama, county, municipality, board or other entity of this state, valid student or employee ID from a public or private college or university in the State of Alabama (including postgraduate technical or professional schools), valid military ID or valid tribal ID.
