(Preaching to the choir here, but if this helps one reader, it’s worth it.)
ETA: I found this great link, via the League of Women Voters, where you can check to make sure you’re properly registered and get the location of your polling place.
If you aren’t already registered, DO IT! Your registration must be either hand-delivered or postmarked to your county registrar by tomorrow, October 24. Here’s a link to the voter registration form (PDF), which includes an address list for every county registrar’s office in the state.
As you prepare to vote, you can review a sample ballot for your county here. Also, check out this link at snopes.com regarding some warnings that have circulated about problems with straight ticket voting. The gist of it is this: different states have different rules that govern straight ticket voting, so study your ballot before you go into the voting booth.
And, of course, be sure you know where to vote. I don’t know about you, but I go to one location for national and state elections and another for local elections, and it can get confusing.
When you go to the polls on November 4, be sure to take proper identification. Click here to see which forms of ID are acceptable in Alabama. You may be amused to know that the list includes valid Alabama fishing and hunting licenses.
Thanks to Blues reader Helen for the Snopes link.
