The Madison County Election Commission is made up of 5 commissioners representing each of the 5 supervisors' districts. The job of each commissioner is to uphold the election law and see that the elections (general, special and run-off) are conducted in an honest and fair manner. It is our duty to prepare the ballots, man the polling locations, certify the election and purge the voter rolls. Primary elections are overseen by the respective county party and the Madison County Election Commissioners are not involved with these elections.
You can help the Madison County Election Commissioners keep the voter rolls updated by notifying us if you move or if a family member had passed away.

A great way to get involved, or just to understand the election process, is to sign up to become a poll worker.
If you are interested in becoming a poll worker on election days ($125) contact your election commissioner or leave a message at the election commissioner's office. We are always looking for poll workers.

- Voters must register at least 30 days prior to the election.
- For your vote to count, you must be registered in Madison County and you should vote at the precinct where you live. If you have moved from one location to another in Madison County, but have not changed your address with the Circuit Clerk, you should still go to the precinct for the area in which you live. Your name will not be on the Poll Book at that location but you should vote by affidavit. After the polls close, all affidavits are reviewed by the Election Commission. Once your name is found on the Madison County voter rolls, the Election Commissioners will then verify your information. Once your information is found to be valid, your vote will be counted and your information will be updated in the system. If you are unsure as to which precinct you should be voting in, (click here) to see the Madison County precinct map and find where you live, then match that color to the color coded listing on the left of the page.
