I am honored to serve as your Judge of Probate. As the Judge of Probate my objective is to serve you with integrity and quality. My highest priority is to offer the best service possible to the public using the most modern technology available. This website is another innovation allowing improved service to the public.
I hope that you find our website helpful, informative, and easy to navigate. It is designed to be used as a comprehensive tool to access election information and provide quick access to forms, updates, and election-related links. You can easily find information on how to register to vote, where to vote, and when to vote. We know that voters and candidates need convenient access to information and we endeavor to provide it with this website.
Along with our many other duties, the Judge of Probate is the county’s chief election official. Each election our office is responsible for verifying the signatures on a petition for a person to run as an independent candidate for county office; accepting and preserving FCPA forms for public inspection; serving along with the Circuit Clerk and the Sheriff as a member of the appointing board, which is responsible for appointing precinct election officials (poll workers) at each election; conducting an election school for all election officials; testing each ballot counter for accuracy; publishing a list of qualified electors in a newspaper of general circulation in the county and delivering an accurate list to each polling place; ordering and printing of ballots; maintaining records after an election; and serving along with the Circuit Clerk and Sheriff as the canvassing board.
If you have any questions or comments, please contact our elections manager, Kate Terry, by email at email@example.com .
Please remember the Alabama Legislature passed Act 2017-340. This law requires a person who voted in a political party’s primary election to participate in the same party’s primary runoff election, if the person seeks to vote in a primary runoff election. If a person did not vote in a political party’s primary election, the person maintains the right to choose in which party’s primary runoff election he or she will vote.
