Board of Registrars
Who We Are
The Board of Registrars is composed of three members who serve a four-year term of appointment. Appointments are made by the governor, the state auditor, and the commissioner of agriculture and industries.

The Board of Registrars is for voter registration only. Information on vehicle and other registrations and licenses may be found via the license office.

Forms
Voter registration forms may be found at the office of the Board of Registrars, the satellite licensing offices located in Inverness and Pelham, or any public library in the state.

Applications should be sent to the Shelby County Board of Registrars.

Name / Address Change

When moving from one county to another within the state, voter registration does not transfer. A new registration is required. A completed registration form should be forwarded to the new county.

Name changes and changes of address within the county must be made in writing and forwarded to the Shelby County Board of Registrars.

Eligibility
An eligible voter must:
  • Be a United States citizen
  • Live in the State of Alabama
  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Not be barred from voting by reason of a disqualifying felony conviction
  • Not be judged "mentally incompetent" in a court of law
  • Be a resident of the city for 30 days (for municipal elections)

Registration
Applicants registering for the first time must complete a State of Alabama Voter Registration Form and submit it to the county in which they reside. Applicants must provide a physical residential address, not just a post office box.

The applicant's date of birth and an original signature are also required. A Voter ID Card will be mailed to the voter showing the assigned polling location.

If you are interested, you may check that you are a registered voter in Shelby County and see your assigned polling location.

Students attending college in-state have the option of registering in either their home county or their school’s county.

City Elections
For municipal elections, a city election official maintains the poll list, assigns a voting location, and serves as the absentee voting official. A person must be a resident of the city for 30 days before registering to vote in a municipal election. Applications sent by mail must be postmarked prior to the 10th day before an election.

Applications should be sent directly to the Shelby County Board of Registrars.

Absentee Voting
For municipal elections, a city election official maintains the poll list, assigns a voting location, and serves as the absentee voting official.

For all other elections, absentee ballots are the responsibility of the Circuit Clerk’s Office.
