Friday was the deadline to register to vote in Alabama.
As of Monday morning, Alabama's voter rolls were about 7,600 names away from hitting 3 million.
Election officials are still processing the rush of last-minute applications and a final number won't be available until later in the week.
The state's supervisor of voter registration, Ed Packard, said Alabama may cross the 3 million mark when all forms are processed.
Alabama's old record was 2.88 million registered voters during
the 2000 presidential election.
