Eligibility (75.2% eligible to vote)
Alabama joined the Union in December 1819 and participated in all elections from 1820 on, except 1864 (due to its secession). Like most southern states, Alabama was a Democratic stronghold from Reconstruction through the 1950s. Southern Democrats were always more conservative than their increasingly liberal Northern brethren, which led to a period during which they put slates of unpledged electors on the ballot. This dissension in the party generally didn’t impact the final results. However, in 1960, six of the 11 Alabama electors cast their votes for Harry F. Byrd, despite John F. Kennedy winning the state’s popular vote.

Alabama has 9 Electoral College votes to cast in Presidential elections.
