Vote 2016: Sample ballots for Jefferson, Shelby County general election

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

We’re pretty sure these are the right ballots.

Vote 2016The State of Alabama reprinted 2.7 million ballots earlier this month after omitting language from one of the 14(!) amendments up for our consideration; Secretary of State John Merrill said he didn’t know what the blunder cost.

Anyway, download your sample ballot for Jefferson or Shelby County for the Nov. 8 general election. Good luck, Jefferson County residents: The 364-page PDF contains 91(!!) versions of the four-page ballot to correspond with various overlaps in federal, state, county and city districts.

Also, check out the Alabama Voter Guide, with voting procedures and frequently asked questions.

For easier viewing, you can print, download or zoom to full screen with each ballot.
