Our Story


Vote Huntsville was started in the spring of 2020 with the goal of registering protesters to vote. We quickly grew after realizing  the difficulties  surrounding registering to vote in the state of Alabama, finding relevant voting information, and learning about candidates.

We strive to make voting a simple and painless process by being a local one-stop-shop for anything and everything voting related. It is our belief  that everyone has the right to share their voice at the ballot box by voting, and we intend to do everything we can to empower both disenfranchised communities and people in Huntsville.

We love the city of Huntsville, and are incredibly passionate about rights and practices surrounding fair voting for all. If you would like to volunteer or have any questions about local voting opportunities or information, please contact us.
