Alabama groups hope to increase voter numbers

DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) Along with many voters heading to the polls for a runoff election for Alabama’s U.S. Senate Seat, Tuesday (September 26th) is also National Voter Registration Day.

First celebrated in 2012, National Voter Registration Day occurs annually the fourth Tuesday in September. The goal is to create awareness of voter registration opportunities. This is for those who may not register otherwise, and who need to update their information. Registering to vote is free.

“If you have an Alabama driver’s license or an Alabama non-driving identification card you can register online at,” said Kristen De la Fuente, member of the League of Women Voters in Alabama. “If you don’t have an Alabama driver’s license or a non-driving ID, say you just moved here for instance, you can go to your county registrar to get an application or go back to that website and download an application.”

Even though it’s too late to register for the runoff election, you can still register for Alabama’s Special Election, December 12th. The deadline to register is Monday, November 27th.
