MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – Friday is the last day to request an absentee ballot for Alabama’s runoff election on Tuesday.

Alabama’s chief election official, Secretary of State Jim Bennett, says many registered voters will be away on summer vacations next week, and they can request absentee ballots before leaving town.

Absentee ballot information can be obtained from a state website (http://www.alabamavotes.gov ).

Bennett also reminds voters that the runoff will be the second election where voters need to show a photo ID. Acceptable IDs include an Alabama driver’s license, an Alabama non-driver ID, a passport or an employee ID issued by the federal government, Alabama government, or city or county in Alabama. Voters casting an absentee ballot will need to include a copy of their photo ID with their ballot material.
