Voter Records: Make sure that your name and address are correct on the official voting list--there is no automatic system for updating.

It is also possible that you may be on the inactive list. To update your voting information, print and complete the voter update form. Mail completed forms to the Etowah County Board of Registrars, 800 Forrest Avenue, Gadsden, AL 35901.
