08/17/2010 - The state is moving forward with ex­panded voting options for military and over­seas voters to comply with a new federal law.

Secretary of State Beth Chapman an­nounced a contract with Scytl USA that will allow for the electronic transmission of ab­sentee ballots to military and overseas vot­ers. The ballot request and completed bal­lots still have to be sent through the U.S. Postal Service.

In Alabama, it can take up to 88 days to complete the voting process under existing state law, according to a 2009 report by the Pew Center on the States.
