2020 United States presidential election in Alabama

← 2016 November 3, 2020 2024 →

The 2020 United States presidential election in Alabama is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, November 3, 2020, as part of the 2020 United States elections in which all 50 states plus the District of Columbia will participate.[1] Alabama voters will choose electors to represent them in the Electoral College via a popular vote. The state of Alabama has 9 electoral votes in the Electoral College.[2]

In the 2016 United States presidential election, Trump won Alabama by a large margin (62.08% to Hillary Clinton's 34.36%). Alabama has voted for the Republican candidate in every election since it was won by Ronald Reagan in the 1980 election. Given this, Trump is favored to win Alabama in 2020, though the election of Democrat Doug Jones as Senator in 2017 may imply Alabama will not be won as handily as it was by Trump in 2016.

Birmingham was a potential host for the 2020 Democratic National Convention but was ultimately not selected.[3][4]

Primary elections[edit]

As one of the Super Tuesday states, little campaigning has been done here, and the focus has been on the Republican senatorial primary, which is expected to boost turnout.

Former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld is challenging incumbent president Donald Trump in the Republican primary of Alabama.[5]
