Monday final day to register for upcoming Alabama elections

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Monday is the final day to register to vote in the March 3 primary elections in Alabama.

People have until midnight to electronically register to vote in the election. Voters can check their registration status and polling places at the Alabama secretary of state’s website.

Voters will cast ballots in the presidential, senate and congressional races as well as a number of state races.

In addition to the presidential primary, the most notable race is the Republican primary for U.S. Senate.

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions is seeking the GOP nomination for the seat he held for 20 years but faces a crowded and competitive field that includes U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne, former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville, former chief justice Roy Moore and others.

The primary winner will face U.S. Sen. Doug Jones in November.

Alabama voters will also decide a proposed constitutional amendment to abolish the elected state school board and replace it with a commission appointed by the governor.
