Since some students here have the option of Virtual School (blended schedule of in-person and virtual), I wanted to share this bit of info. An Attorney Generals Opinion has just been released, which states that students and parents may be held criminally liable for Truancy (student) and Contributing to Delinquency of a Minor (parent) for students that miss virtual class without an "excuse". This has been the law for years: when students miss school excessively without excuses, school boards file petitions with us. I just wanted to share with you that it DOES include virtual class. Happy Friday! AG Opinion 2021-016 (2/2/2021)

ALABAMA Secretary of State | VoterView

If you voted Absentee and you want to know if your ballot was received, go to: https://myinfo.alabamavotes.gov and you can check to see that your ballot was received and in the box for counting. If it is not received by noon today and you choose to go to the polls, you will be required to vote a provisional ballot. **Pike County is "up to date/time", but I cannot speak for other counties. I have scanned all received ballots**

11/03/2020

Tonight, I ask that you say a prayer for all poll workers for tomorrow. Please be patient with them. On a given election day, it is a very long day. The hours of precincts are 7am-7pm. Realistically, they work from 6am-8pm+. They do this because they love what they do. They love visiting with voters, respect the process, and they facilitate a right that each US citizen gets to exercise on election day. It is sometimes a thankless job. Thank them. A little appreciation goes a long way. To each Poll Worker, thank you for all that you do! ❤🇺🇸

10/30/2020

Yesterday was the last day to apply for an Absentee Ballot. The ONLY exceptions for voting today or Monday are: 1. A medical emergency that you did not know about prior to today (a physician must sign an affidavit). 2. A business emergency that requires you to be out of town on Nov 3rd, that you did not know about prior to today. 3. A death in the family within a certain degree of relation, which requires you to be out of town on Nov 3rd. 4. *New* A utility worker that is being displaced, for travel to assist storm damaged areas from Hurricane Zeta.

10/30/2020

Since Sept. 7th, when we received ballots for the General Election, my office has processed 3 times as many Absentee Ballots, than our average for a Presidential race. Hats off to a fantastic staff who helped make this happen. 90% + of ballots have already been returned to my office for counting on Nov. 3rd! The ability to help voters that are eligible to vote Absentee, is always fulfilling. I thank all of you who came in and had such kind words to share for the work you witnessed us putting in each day. Thanks to Stephanie, Kala, Leanne, Yvette & Allison for everything! WE MADE IT!

At the Circuit Clerks Annual conference in July, I was asked to serve as President of the Alabama Circuit Clerks Association for a 2nd term. What an honor. What an honor to serve with this Executive Board, what an honor to represent our Association, and most importantly, what an honor to represent the people of Pike County. On a side-note, Circuit Judge Jeff Kelley (Pike/Coffee Co) is the President of the Alabama Judges Association. I am not certain that it has ever happened before where both Presidents are from the same county. #PikeCountyStrong

Attached is the Press Release that I sent on 9/15/2020 to the Troy Messenger. In today's printed newspaper, it states that the General Election is Nov 2nd. That is incorrect. It is Tuesday, Nov 3rd. The deadline to apply for an Absentee is tomorrow, Oct 29th, not today. If you have any questions, please call 566-5113.

Alabama Juror Qualification System

If you received a jury summons for September 30, 2020, please make sure you go to juror.alacourt.com and complete the questionnaire. This will save you a tremendous amount of time and limit in-person contact. After passage by the Supreme Court, I was fortunate to be involved in the creation of this program with Judges and Court Administrators across the state, to assist with online qualification. The process does not take long. If your qualify online, you will be contacted by email or phone on the date you must appear. If you do not qualify online, you will be notified of alternate times to appear throughout the day on September 30th. Requests for excusal, postponement, disqualification and address updates may also be submitted via the website.

If you are applying for an Absentee Ballot for the November Election, some things to remember when filling out an application:
1. This is the GENERAL ELECTION. I cannot alter an application, so mark the correct election.
2. Send your valid photo ID with your application.
3. I will not have ballots until September 9th. I already have 200+ applications, but you will not be mailed a ballot until I receive them. I have gotten calls because ballots have not been received in the mail. I will mail them the day I receive them.
4. Once I receive ballots, you may come to my office and vote your ballot. Be sure to bring your photo ID with you.
5. Do NOT put multiple applications in the same envelope. 1 application per envelope.
6. Read the instructions. If your affidavit is not properly completed, witnessed or notarized, it will not count. Read your instructions.
7. Do not allow someone to vote or mail your ballot for you, that you do not know and trust. Get a family member to help you or someone you know. It is a felony to commit Absentee Voting Fraud. Do not be a victim of fraudulent behavior.
8. VOTE!

Home | Alabama Secretary of State

Yesterday, I had several calls concerning the USPS and absentee ballots not arriving. As I told each caller yesterday, this has been an ongoing problem for years. I have not had this problem in Pike Co, in great volume. I have made posts before, bragging on the system that our local postal worker and I have worked out on every election day. We talk the night before, Patricia pulls out all ballots first thing in the morning on election day and I pick them up from the post office. Going back for 10+ years, other (much larger) counties have had major problems--the USPS in Bham has been aware of this problem for some time. Some counties receive stacks of ballots in the mail after the election, that were postmarked 1-2 weeks prior. I received a ballot last week in the mail from Huntsville (absentee) for the July 14th Run-off.
My suggestions are:
1. Do not wait until the last minute to apply for an Absentee Ballot.
2. Make sure you send a copy of your photo ID with your application, so it is not delayed.
3. Make sure that if you are voting Absentee, MAIL IT YOURSELF or have a family member/friend that you trust to mail it for you. I have had elections where over 200 ballots were never received/mailed by the voter (I never got them back). Do not allow someone you do not know or trust to pick-up your ballot and mail it for you.
4. In 2019, the law changed, so that we can now accept ballots by private carrier (UPS, FedEx, etc...) and you can track your ballot.
5. Make sure you read the instructions that are included with you Absentee Ballot to assure your Absentee Ballot is counted (proper witnesses or notarization and signature).
6. Practicing personal safety measures, the most assured way to vote is always in person, feeding your voted ballot into the machine. If you are concerned that your ballot has or has not been received after you mail it, I will be glad to check for you.
7. I cannot accept applications or ballots from a 3rd party. The VOTER must hand-deliver their own application and/or ballot or mail it to my office. No person can bring another voters ballot to my office, even a spouse. I will not accept it from anyone besides THE voter. If a voter cannot get out of a vehicle, let me know and I will walk to the vehicle at the Courthouse for them to hand it to me, but I cannot accept it from anyone else.

If an absentee ballot is received after 12pm on election day, by mail, it is not counted--unless it is a UOCAVA ballot. Do NOT wait until the last day to apply. I hope this clears up any concerns you may have. A voter can print an Absentee Application at www.sos.alabama.gov or call my office and I will mail you one.

Although the Courthouse will be open to the public, our Presiding Judge has suspended all in-court appearances until June 1, 2020. This is due to the increase of COVID-19 cases in Pike and Coffee Counties.

If you have court scheduled next week, please call my office at 334-566-5113 to confirm continuance. We apologize for the inconvenience and we are scheduling cases as promptly as possible.

The courthouse is currently experiencing electrical issues. We have no internet or phone service at this time. I have obtained an emergency telephone number for the public to access our office.

The Courts are still open, pursuant to the Supreme Court Order issued a couple of weeks ago. We are still issuing warrants and filing all emergency petitions, in-person, as ordered. All electronic filings are being processed daily, as we are working daily. I encourage you to apply now to vote by Absentee ballot if you feel that you will not make it to the polls in July, due to physical incapabilities. If you have any emergency petitions to file with the court, just let the guards know and they will give you a number to call for us to speak with you, or they will let us know.

ATTENTION: The Pike County Commission has adopted a Resolution to close all Pike County Offices and related facilities to the public effective March 26, 2020. See the Resolution and Public Service Announcement below for more information.

PLEASE SHARE***This post does NOT apply to Troy Municipal or Brundidge Municipal Courts--this is District/Circuit Courts @ Pike Co Courthouse***Last night, the Supreme Court issued an order limiting court appearances and the courts duties, WITH EXCEPTIONS, for a period of 30 days. Beginning Monday, my office will be closed to the public, for non-emergency issues. Defendants will NOT be penalized for non-payment of fines, if payments are normally made in-person.

1. Emergency Petitions, Restraining Orders, Protection Orders, etc...are all included in the exceptions. I have confirmed with Judge Curtis that the cases that he has set for Monday and Tuesday will be continued to a later date--if you have court Monday or Tuesday WITH JUDGE CURTIS (we have 6 judges that hold court in our circuit), message me and I will be glad to check your case to confirm a continuance.
