Applications for Municipal Election Absentee Ballots Now Open
Tuscaloosa residents can officially apply for an absentee ballot in the 2021 municipal election. Applications can be picked up at Tuscaloosa City Hall or be downloaded online.
"We want to assist in this process in any way possible to ensure that every citizen in the City of Tuscaloosa who can vote, is able to vote," said Carly Standridge, city clerk.
Once a voter fills out their application, they can mail it along with a copy of their driver's license to P.O. Box 2089 Tuscaloosa, AL 35403, or be delivered in person to the City Clerk's office each day from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Once the application is processed, a ballot will be sent to the registered address. From there, voters can either complete and send back the ballot from home, or return to the City Clerk's Office in City Hall to vote absentee in-person until March 1. All absentee ballots must be completed, notarized, and returned prior to the election on March 2.
The deadline to submit applications to receive an absentee ballot is Feb. 25. Absentee ballots will be accepted until March 2 at noon.
