what's new in alabama voting since 2020
In 2021, Alabama passed eight new election laws, with mixed impacts. Here's what you should be aware of. Alabama no longer has curbside voting our outdoor voting. Additionally, the deadline for absentee ballot requests has changed from 7 days before Election Day to just 5 days before Election Day. Make sure to get your absentee ballot request in now, if you plan to vote that way. One more thing to remember: in 2020, all voters were eligible for an absentee ballot due to COVID-19. In 2022, absentee voting will likely return to the pre-pandemic status quo, where only certain voters can use mail-in voting.learn more

Vote Save the Senate Fund
If we can increase our majority to 52 Senate seats in 2022, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema’s refusal to change the filibuster won’t matter. We can elect a Democratic majority that takes decisive action on raising the minimum wage, forgiving student debt, fighting climate change, protecting reproductive freedom, and more. But that will only work if we also protect the four most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in purple states like Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, and New Hampshire.
