MADISON COUNTY, ALABAMA, Ala. —
Voting absentee in the 2022 Alabama runoff election? Deadlines are coming up for the June 21 election. Questions about the absentee voting rules? You're not alone. The Madison County Probate Office clarified some of the dates and rules for absentee voters.
The Probate Court of Madison County issued the following information for the June 21, 2022 Primary Runoff Election.
Due to U.S. Mail processing times and the brief period for voters to request, receive, and return absentee ballots by mail for the Primary Runoff Election, Judge Frank Barger encourages voters that need to utilize the absentee process to do so in-person if possible.
The Probate Court has no control over U.S. Mail processing and delivery times. The Probate Court of Madison County continues our commitment to deliver efficient, secure, and transparent elections.
