In order to bring voter registration into the 21st century and make voting as convenient as possible, the ACLU of Alabama advocates for reforms that have been demonstrated to be extremely effective at making sure that all Americans who want to cast a ballot are able to do so. Efforts to expand access to the polls include allowing no-excuse absentee ballots and same-day voter registration, and eliminating voter ID laws that suppress turnout.

The ACLU of Alabama also pushes to repeal Jim Crow-era laws that take away the rights of citizens with criminal convictions.
