Nearly one in 10 Alabama voters are characterized as inactive and will need to update their addresses in order to vote on Tuesday.

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill said 301,914 voters are listed as inactive.

Merrill said those voters can still cast ballots on Tuesday, but must fill out a form at their polling place to update their address.

Most of those voters were declared inactive during voter roll maintenance when the state was unable to reach the person with mailed postcards.

People can check their voting information at the secretary of state’s website.
