Election day is here at last.
Voters in Marion County and across the nation will go to the polls on Tuesday, Nov. 3, to decide who will be the next president of the United States. Polls in Alabama will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The last day to request an absentee ballot will be Thursday, Oct. 29. Those must be hand-delivered or postmarked by Monday, Nov. 2. Those interested in voting absentee should contact Marion County Absentee Election Manager Denise Mixon at (205) 921-7451. Her office is located on the second floor of the Marion County Courthouse in Hamilton.
Absentee voting qualifications have been extended to include the state of emergency due to COVID-19. Those using this as a reason should mark “I have a physical illness or infirmity which prevents my attendance at the polls.”
