March 31 Run-Off Election Voter Guide

Madison County will hold run-off elections on Tuesday, March 31st for two critical County Commission primary races. The Huntsville Area Association of REALTORSĀ® has endorsed in both of these races, supporting Tom Brandon for County Commission District 1 and JesHenry Malone for County Commission District 6.

HAAR has assembled a quick voter guide below for those who will be out of town on Election Day or with questions about crossover voting. Please see below for answers to those questions and more, and contact Sean Magers at sean@valleymls.com or the Madison County probate office at 256-532-3330 with further questions.

Absentee Voting

For many, March 31’s Election Day falls during Spring Break when families might be on vacation or otherwise out of town.Ā  Madison County offers a host of opportunities for voters to make their voice heard by voting absentee. Please take note of important dates and note that you can take advantage of in-person, same day absentee voting at the Madison County Courthouse between March 16 and March 26. If you have additional questions, please call the Madison County probate office at 256-532-3330.

Crossover Voting Prohibited

Since 2018, Alabama state law has banned “crossover voting”. This only prohibits those who voted in one party’s primary election from voting in another party’s run-off election. It does not apply to the general election in November or to non-partisan municipal elections in August. For instance:

  • If you voted on March 3rd and asked for a Democratic ballot, you cannot vote in any Republican run-off races on March 31st.
  • If you voted on March 3rd and asked for a Republican ballot, you cannot vote in any Democratic run-off races on March 31st.
  • If you did not vote on March 3rd, you have the choice to vote on either a Republican or Democratic ballot on March 31st.
If you have addition questions, please contact Sean Magers at sean@valleymls.com or the Madison County probate office at 256-532-3330.
