Secretary of State Jim Bennett is reminding Alabama citizens that the deadline to register to vote for the upcoming June 3 primary election is Friday, May 23.

To make sure citizens are registered to vote, to view a sample ballot, get information on voting an absentee ballot, or find their polling place, voters may visit Alabama’s official election website at www.alabamavotes.gov. Voters may also locate polling places and find out more information about their registration status by contacting their county board of registrars. The Escambia County Board of Registrars can be reached at (251) 867-0243.

If a voter has moved, the voter needs to update their voter registration information with the county board of registrars so they may cast a regular ballot in their correct polling place for this election. The deadline for those updates is also May 23.

“We want to ensure that every person who is eligible to vote is able to do so,” Bennett said. “My staff and I will continue to work diligently to promote fair and honest elections for the citizens of Alabama. We’re here to serve.”
