We recommend a straight ticket Republican vote.

Local Constitutional Amendments, Acts, and Referendums

Blount County

"Do you favor the formation of a district to be known as the Mt. High Fire and Emergency Medical Services District and the collection of mandatory annual dues of $120.00 to be assessed annually on each residence, business, and church in the boundaries of the district?"

Calhoun County

On the ballot: PROPOSED LOCAL AMENDMENT NUMBER ONE (1) Relating to Calhoun County, proposing a local amendment to Amendment 508 of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, authorizing the operation of bingo games for prizes or money in the county; and to prohibit any bingo permittee or licensee from operating bingo near a residential area. (Proposed by Act 2017-81)

  • Vote: YES

What it means: If passed, the amendment would ban bingo halls from operating within 3,000 feet of any residence.

When the ballot measure says "authorizing the operation of bingo games for prizes or money in the county" it means that bingo games are already legal according to Amendment 508 of the Alabama Constitution. The wording of the ballot measure makes it seem like voting yes would authorize bingo games in Calhoun County. However, they are already legal according to Amendment 508. This ballot measure will add the additional regulation of not allowing bingo games from operating within 3,000 feet of any residence.

On the ballot: PROPOSED AMENDMENT NUMBER TWO (2) Relating to Calhoun County, proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to provide that any territory in Calhoun County outside of the corporate limits of a municipality would not be subject to the police jurisdiction or planning jurisdiction of the municipality if the municipality is not located entirely in the county and to provide an exception for the City of Oxford. (Proposed by Act 2018-17)

  • Vote: YES

What it means: If passed, the amendment would restrict cities that straddle the county (Southside, Glencoe, maybe Piedmont) from being able to exercise police jurisdiction within the county. Only cities that lie entirely within Calhoun County would have police jurisdiction in the county.

Chambers County

"SUNDAY SALES. Do you favor the legal sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages in Chambers County outside the corporate limits of the City of Valley and the City of Lanett on Sunday after 12:00 p.m.?" - NO

Chilton County

"Relating to Chilton County; proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, for those areas of Chilton County outside the corporate limits of any municipality, to authorize the Legislature to establish a procedure by which a dog can be declared dangerous and to provide for a penalty. (Proposed by Act 2018-184)" - YES

Clay County

"PROPOSED LOCAL AMENDMENT NUMBER ONE (1) Relating to Clay County, proposing an amendment to Amendment 671 to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, now appearing as Section 4, Local Amendments, Clay County, Official Recompilation of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, as amended, to prohibit the Sheriff of Clay County from participating in the supernumerary program of the county and to allow the sheriff to elect to participate in the Employees' Retirement System. (Proposed by Act 2018-37)"

"PROPOSED LOCAL AMENDMENT NUMBER TWO (2) Relating to Clay County, proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, prohibiting the removal of the state courts from the historical Clay County Courthouse. (Proposed by Act 2018-91)"

Cleburne County Local Act

"Whether the powers authorized under the Alabama Limited Self Governance Act shall be effective in Cleburne County?" - NO

The name of the Alabama Limited Self Governance act is misleading since it really means removing the safeguards of the Alabama Constitution on counties from passing unnecessary regulations and increasing the size of the county government. A NO vote is a vote for Limited Government and property rights.

Cullman County

"PROPOSED LOCAL AMENDMENT NUMBER ONE (1) Relating to Cullman County, proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to provide that effective beginning the next term of office of the sheriff, all allowances or amounts received by the sheriff for feeding prisoners would be deposited in a special account and used for feeding prisoners in the county jail and any excess in the fund would be authorized to be used for law enforcement purposes by the sheriff and to provide that, at that time, the annual salary of the Sheriff of Cullman County would be equal to the annual salary of the Judge of Probate of Cullman County. (Proposed by Act 2018-409)" - YES

Dale County

"Do you favor the adoption of Act 239, of the 2018 regular Session of the Alabama Legislature?"

Although “emergency medical services” is not in the verbiage, approval of Act 239 will allow a $5 tag transaction fee earmarked to fund emergency medical services in Dale County.

A “yes” vote will mean the assessment of a $5 fee for each motor vehicle—except trailer tags—issued or renewed in Dale County beginning Jan. 1, 2019. The fee will not apply to tag transfers and replacement tag transactions.

Three percent of the proceeds from the fees collected will be retained by the Dale County Revenue Commissioner’s office to cover administrative costs and the remainder given to the Dale County Commission to be distributed to municipalities and emergency medical service organizations for EMS services, according to the bill.

For more information: Tag tax, alcohol sales to be decided in Dale County Tuesday.

Sunday Alcohol Sales

"Do you favor the legal sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages for on-premises and off-premises consumption within Dale County on Sunday after 1:00 P.M. as provided in Act 245 of the 2018 Regular Session?" - NO

Elmore County

SPECIAL REFERENDUM ELECTION "Shall the powers previously authorized to the Elmore County Commission under Chapter 11-3A-1 et seq ., of the Code of Alabama , 1975, also known as "The Alabama Limited Self-Governance Act," be repealed in Elmore County? The powers authorized the County Commission to provide for its property and affairs; and for the public welfare, health and safety of its citizens throughout unincorporated areas of the county by excercising certain powers for protection of the county and public property under its control, except as otherwise prohibited and/or defined by law. The authorized powers include: (1) Abatement of weeds as a public nuisance; (2) Control of animals and animal nuisances; (3) Control of litter or rubbish; (4) Control of junkyards which create a public nuisance because of an accumulation of items; and (5) Abatement of noise, unsanitary sewage, or pollution creating a public nuisance." - YES

The name of the Alabama Limited Self Governance act is misleading since it really means removing the safeguards of the Alabama Constitution on counties from passing unnecessary regulations and increasing the size of the county government. A YES vote is a vote for Limited Government and property rights.

Etowah County

SPECIAL REFERENDUM Pursuant to Act No. 2017-305 Do you favor the legal sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages outside the corporate limits of any municipality within the county on Sunday as further provided for and regulated by ordinance of the county commission? - NO

(Proposed by Act 2018-167)

More Information on Amendment 2

AN EDUCATIONAL UPDATE FROM THE SOUTHEAST LAW INSTITUTE TM, INC. A. Eric Johnston

Proposed Alabama Constitutional Amendments - Alabama Sanctity of Unborn Life

Another important constitutional amendment which will be voted on at the time of the general election will be a proposed constitutional amendment recognizing the sanctity of unborn life in Alabama. The text of that amendment reads as follows:

(a) This state acknowledges, declares, and affirms that it is the public policy of this state to recognize and support the sanctity of unborn life and the rights of unborn children, including the right to life. (b) This state further acknowledges, declares, and affirms that it is the public policy of this state to ensure the protection of the rights of the unborn child in all manners and measures lawful and appropriate. (c) Nothing in this constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of an abortion.

The complete proposed amendment will not appear on the ballot. This is what you will see on the ballot:

“Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, as amended; to declare and otherwise affirm that it is the public policy of this state to recognize and support the sanctity of unborn life and the rights of unborn children, most importantly the right to life in all manners and measures appropriate and lawful; and to provide that the constitution of this state does not protect the right to abortion or require the funding of abortion.”

Since 1973, abortion has been legal in the United States. A decision by SCOTUS in Roe v. Wade opened the door for virtually unlimited abortion. Through the years, subsequent SCOTUS cases have upheld Roe and enlarged on it. In some cases, certain regulation has been permitted. Through the work of the Alabama Pro-Life Coalition (“APLC”), a significant number of regulations have been passed that reduce the number of abortions and protect women’s healthcare, as much as legally permitted, from the substandard care they receive in abortion clinics.

The unique thing about the Roe decision is that opposition to it has never gone away. Roe was a very badly decided case with no legitimate constitutional underpinnings. The case was based on “an exercise of raw judicial power” as then Justice Byron White said in a dissent to the case.

The pro-life community continues to work toward the day when abortion will again be outlawed. Abortion is based on the terrible concept that the unborn child is not a person within the meaning of the U.S. Constitution. Because we amend the Alabama Constitution to recognize personhood will not undo Roe.

However, with President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh as a Justice to SCOTUS, we see the possibility that Roe may be reversed. Judicial, political and popular opinion opposition to Roe has remained constant for 45 years. Because it was such an illegitimate decision, our hope and expectation are that Roe will be reversed and sanity concerning the sanctity of life will be restored.

Therefore, this proposed constitutional amendment is a very important public policy statement for Alabama. We cannot say for sure how SCOTUS may rule if it reversed Roe, but the chances are it would either reestablish personhood of the unborn child or return the issue to the states. In either event, with approval of this constitutional amendment, the State of Alabama would be obligated then to enact statutes to criminalize the act of abortion. Therefore, the importance of this constitutional amendment is significant and is a very good strategic move in the fight to protect unborn life

SLI supports this amendment and urges a yes vote on it. SLI looks forward to the time when it will be able to work with APLC to rid the State of Alabama of this horrific murdering of her children.

It is time to return to our Constitution and support The Ten Commandments

NEO-CONSERVATIVE GROUPS ARE CAUSING CONFUSION IN THE CONSERVATIVE COMMUNITY

Many of us have been shocked to see major main line conservative groups issue shaded information on Senator Arlen Specter, Alberto Gonzales, and Bill Pryor. It was unbelievable to see these proven liberals to be called "Conservative" by Christian leaders. This has created a lot of confusion in the conservative community to see some conservative organizations to call Senator Specter, Alberto Gonzales, and Bill Pryor as "liberals" and other mainline conservative groups neutralizing their efforts by calling the same three men as "conservative". We lost round 1 on Senator Specter when many neo-conservatives issued positive statements concerning Senator Specter. A litmus test of a true conservative is observing their opposition to liberals like Alberto Gonzales, Bill Pryor, and Senator Specter.

Bad judgment calls have been made by several main line conservative groups. They must be held accountable and taken to task. America, we are losing ground because of weak conservative leadership. Take time to contact them and gently question and reprove them. We really need these organizations to be restored and back on track doing good things again! One mainline group admitted to getting many negative calls.

We are commanded to contact them:

Galatians 6:1 "Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual restore such a one in the spirit of meekness, considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted."

Isaiah 5: 20 "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil, that put darkness for light."

When contacting these neo conservative groups, remember that you are also appealing to the conscious of the employees of these large conservative organizations. Most of these conservative organizations have made several serious mistakes on the above and other issues. These employees may need to consider leaving their employment and working for a ministry with clean hands and a pure heart. If they refuse to listen, it goes without saying that we need to withdraw our support of some of these mainline groups. There are many small and medium conservative organizations who are true to the faith and worth our support. Conservative

Round 2, Specter can be Stopped - Do IT.

Senator Arlen Specter won round one to obtain the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee. The real election for the chairman will take place in January, when all Republican Senators vote by secret ballot to determine who committee chairman. You still can call or call again to let your Republican Senator know that he should vote against

Senator Specter.

George Bush is sending mixed signals to the conservative community. First the President says he is a born again Christian, which is good. But when the enemy within our borders attack the Ten Commandments, George Bush sits very silently on the sidelines as we see the Christian culture removed from our society. When we and Judge Moore needed him to protect our display of the Ten Commandments, all we could hear from the White House was silence. We are further confused, when the enemy (Alabama Attorney General Bill Pryor) attacked the Ten Commandments display and the public acknowledgment of God, and led the charge to remove Judge Roy Moore, then is rewarded by the Bush Administration by a nice high paying Federal Judge appointment. Perhaps reading the below article can shed some light on the subject.

Bill Pryor Got His Judas Money

By Chuck Baldwin
February 25, 2004

According to news reports, President Bush used a recess appointment Friday [Feb. 20] to give Alabama Attorney General Bill Pryor a seat on the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals temporarily. Pryor was sworn in by U.S. Circuit Judge Ed Carnes in a private ceremony in Alabama Friday. His appointment is expected to last until the end of 2005.

Faithful readers of this column know that Pryor was the political Judas who turned against Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore after promising former Alabama Governor Fob James and the people of Alabama that he would back Moore "all the way." In fact, Bill Pryor would never have attained the Alabama Attorney General's office without his enthusiastic support for Judge Moore. Therefore, James and others were shocked at Pryor's sudden decision to aggressively prosecute Chief Justice Roy Moore and orchestrate Moore's removal from the Alabama Supreme Court.

(To read the transcript of Bill Pryor's shocking remarks during the trial and my eyewitness account of the trial, go to my web site: http://www.chuckbaldwinlive.com)

After Pryor's betrayal of Chief Justice Moore, many people were left wondering, "Who or what got to Bill Pryor?" The answer is obvious:

Karl Rove and a promised federal judgeship.


The Bush White House, through Rove, had clandestinely opposed Roy Moore since he ran for Alabama Chief Justice. When they could not defeat Moore at the polls, they decided to defeat him through the federal courts. To accomplish this, they needed a Judas from inside Alabama. Enter Bill Pryor.

It quickly became obvious to Rove that Pryor was their man. With the promise of a federal judgeship, he would turn against Chief Justice Moore and help assure Moore's removal from the bench. Pryor lived up to his end of the bargain and now Bush and Rove have lived up to their end. Last Friday, President Bush used a recess appointment to install Pryor as a federal appeals court judge. The Judas money has been paid.

When you read Bill Pryor's remarks at Chief Justice Moore's "trial," you will be instantly impressed with the fact that Pryor is a firm believer in transjudicialism. He actually believes that federal judges do not merely interpret the law, they are the law. Pryor suffers from the same disease that many in the judiciary seem to suffer from these days: the belief that a judge's opinion, not the Constitution, is law of the land.

Beyond that, Bill Pryor believes that a judge's opinion is greater in authority than even a person's moral conscience. In Pryor's world, there is no freedom of conscience and no freedom of religion. In Pryor's world, a judge's ruling is superior to moral, natural, or even divine law. In Pryor's world, a federal judge is a de facto king. In other words, Bill Pryor is a judicial tyrant!

However, Bill Pryor is even worse than a judicial tyrant. He is a Judas turncoat who obtained his position by lying to Governor Fob James and the people of Alabama and by betraying a man far greater in honor and character than himself. There is a place reserved for such men, and even a federal judge has no authority or power there! As with Judas of old, Bill Pryor will learn that when one trades truth and honor for thirty pieces of silver, he always makes a bad deal.

What you can do:

1) Contact Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions who sponsored then Attorney General Bill Pryor for the federal Bench. Demand that Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions work to have activist judge Bill Pryor removed from the bench. You may suggest that Senator Sessions not praise men like Bill Pyror. Pyror has a recess appointment and will voted on by U.S. Senate. Contact info for Senator Jeff Sessions is as follows:

US Capitol Switchboard - (800) 648-3516
Washington, D.C. office: ( 202) 224-4124 or Fax (202) 224-3149.
Birmingham, Alabama office at (205) 731-1500 or Fax (205) 731-0221.

2) Contact your own State Senators and make the same demand to them. They have no business supporting and rewarding the man who prosecuted Judge Moore. Would you want this man to be the Judge on a Ten Commandments case from your area? Contact info for your Senators can be found at:

In conclusion, let your heart be encouraged by these recent words from Senator Zell Miller of Georgia:

"I am pleased to be a co-sponsor of S.J. Res. 26 along with Senator Allard and others, . . ., the Liberties Restoration Act, which declares religious liberty rights in several ways, including the Pledge of Allegiance and the display of the Ten Commandments. And today I join Senator Shelby and others with the Constitution Restoration Act of 2004 (S.2082) that limits the jurisdiction of federal courts in certain ways.

"In doing so, I stand shoulder to shoulder not only with my Senate co-sponsors and Chief Justice Roy Moore of Alabama but, more importantly, with our Founding Fathers in the conception of religious liberty and the terribly wrong direction our modern judiciary has taken us in." . . .

"So, as the sand empties through my hourglass at warp speed - and with my time running out in this Senate and on this earth, I feel compelled to speak out. For I truly believe that at times like this, silence is not golden. It is yellow."

Urge Alabama Governor Riley to reappoint Judge Moore to the Alabama Supreme Court

Governor Riley: as you have said many times this year, "We need to do the right thing". "We need to do the Christian thing". After the unjust ruling of Federal Judge Myron Thompson, and the liberal inquisition of the Court of Judiciary, we need Judge Roy Moore back on the Alabama Supreme Court. We know Judge Moore is a proven man of integrity and will do a good job. The voters of Alabama have also chosen Judge Moore to be our Chief Justice.


Request that you, Governor Riley, do the right thing and reappoint Judge Moore to the current vacancy of the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.

Sample letter:

Governor Bob Riley
State Capitol
600 Dexter Avenue
Montgomery, Alabama 36130




Dear Governor Riley:

I request that you, Governor Riley, take the right, courageous, Christian, constitutional and noble action and reappoint Judge Moore to the current vacancy of the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.

As you have said many times this year, "We need to do the right thing". "We need to do the Christian thing". After the unjust ruling of Federal Judge Myron Thompson, and the unconstitutional, liberal inquisition of the appointed Court of Judiciary, we need Judge Roy Moore back on the Alabama Supreme Court. We know Judge Moore is a proven man of integrity and will do a good job. The voters of Alabama have chosen Judge Moore to be their Chief Justice and reinstating him will please your citizen voters.

Please PROTECT our FIRST AMENDMENT RELIGIOUS RIGHTS. Please read the arguments for this position below:

1. Our Declaration of Independence acknowledges God. It is so unique in that it acknowledges and describes God and His supremacy in the founding of our government in four different ways:

1. Laws of Nature and of Nature's God
2. Creator
3. Supreme Judge of the world
4. Divine Providence

The very fact that our Forefathers emphasized their faith in God by using such descriptive words to explain their faith in Him tears down the misconception of the fallacy of the term "separation of church and state" which they did not use in any of our Founding Documents. Our Forefathers obviously did not intend any separation of their Faith in God from our government. By the 1st Amendment they were saying that they were acknowledging God yet they did not want God put into the box of a national denomination.

2. Judge Myron Thompson's ruling was ILLEGAL JUDICIAL ACTIVISM. Any high school kid who ever took Civics, History or had a class about our Constitution knows about the separation of powers. Judge Thompson is the judge who needs removed from office. Since Congress can make NO law regarding the forbidding of the free expression of religion, the acknowledgment of God nor the Ten Commandments then there was NO law for Judge Moore, any other judge or any state government to break who might choose to put up a monument with 14 historical quotations acknowledging God and the Ten Commandments.

3. ALABAMA VOTERS HAVE BEEN 'DISENFRANCHISED' BY the 9 member UNELECTED PANEL THAT OUSTED the CHIEF JUSTICE ROY MOORE and THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS HAVE BEEN VIOLATED by this APPOINTED & UNELECTED PANEL. Alabama Attorney General Bill Pryor and the JIC should have defended instead of prosecuted Judge Moore. To overturn an election and deliver a crushing blow to our constitutional republic by stealing this election was unconstitutional and traitorous.


Gov. Riley, please also ask Congress, on behalf of the State of Alabama to exercise Article III, Sections 1 & 2, of the U.S. Constitution which grants Congress all the power they need to bring an end to decades of judicial activism. By simple majority vote, Congress can limit the jurisdiction of the federal courts to the clear language of the 1st Amendment. And they could do it in 24 hours! 1st AMENDMENT ISSUES SUCH as the Pledge of Allegiance, the Ten Commandments and Marriage should be removed from the jurisdiction of any federal court.


But, now, Gov. Riley, for your vital part please appoint Judge Roy Moore to the office of Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. If you reinstate Judge Moore it will right a wrong and give us time to petition Congress to impeach and remove Judge Myron Thompson.


Respectfully and Patriotically,


Evelyn Bradley

Some Legal Thoughts from an Alabama Attorney

1. Governor Riley fills vacancies on the Supreme Court and could simply reappoint Judge Moore. Any lawyer can serve provided he is not disbarred, his license is not currently suspended, or he has not been convicted of a crime (which this doesn't not involve).

Riley can appoint Roy Moore back to the Supreme Court Chief Justice position if he wants to. Gov Riley will soon make an appoint to fill the vacancy.

2. Caveat: The powers of the Judicial Inquiry Commission are very vague. The penalties they may impose are also vaguely worded. If they terminate Moore, with nothing more, then Riley can appoint Moore to fill the vacancy. Uncharted waters are reached if they both terminate Moore and try to bar him from holding a Supreme Court position for some future period of time. power.
