The polls opened in Alabama at 7 a.m. Tuesday for Election Day, and several voters have reported long lines at their precincts.
Workers at churches and recreational centers in the Tennessee Valley said they are doing what they can to make the process of standing in line to cast your ballot easy.
"We have chairs for people to sit in, we're going to help them with parking and we have a plan in place to make the experience comfortable," said O'Brien Wherry. He's the Recreational Coordinator at the Dr. Richard Showers Center in Huntsville.
Because you may have to wait in line, you will want to make sure you have everything you need before you head out to vote.
Voters in Alabama must show some form of ID. Poll workers will ask for a current and valid government photo ID.
You can use an employee identification card with your picture. IDs from colleges, universities, tech or professional schools will also be accepted.
Here are just a few of the other documents accepted:
A utility bill with your name and address
A bank statement with your name and address
A paycheck with your name and address
If you get all the way to the front of the line and you don't have your ID, you can still vote. If two poll workers can identify you as the person you say you are, you'll be given a ballot. Otherwise, you'll get a provisional ballot.
Provisional ballots are also provided for anyone who doesn't appear on the voter list.
