(AL.com) — Voters who will be traveling or can't make it to the polls for certain other reasons for the special election on Dec. 12 must apply today for an absentee ballot.
The deadline to apply for an absentee ballot is the end of business today, five days before the election between Democrat Doug Jones and Republican Roy Moore for the U.S. Senate.
Absentee ballots returned by mail must be postmarked no later than Dec. 11 and must arrive at the county absentee election manager's office no later than noon on election day.
Absentee ballots hand-delivered to the county absentee ballot manager's office must be delivered by close of business on Dec. 11.
Absentee ballot applications are available on the Secretary of State's website, as is a list of addresses for absentee election managers by county.
