Voter Information YOU Need to Know About
as a Citizen of Colbert County

Periodically, the Secretary of State mandates that each Alabama County Board of Registrars compile a list of voters to be purged from the voter rosters due to; one, death of the registered voter, two, that voter relocating their residence beyond the County or political boundary in which they were last registered to vote or lastly, due to voter inactivity of the previous four years.

The "purge list" for Colbert County can be viewed or downloaded here. This is the current list of Colbert County voters which are scheduled to be removed in the near future.

Please review this list and if your name is among those listed and should not be or if you find other discrepencies with the list, contact the Colbert County Board of Registrars and find out what you need to do to ensure that you will be able to vote.

There is a very important election next year, which is when we will vote for a U.S. Senator, our State offices including Governor; Secretary of State; Attorney General and others, including our legislators. We will also elect our District Judge; Sheriff, and District Attorney.

Every citizen has the right and the responsibility to choose the best person to represent us. Please participate in the process of selecting our political leaders!
