Legislation dealing with absentee voting in Alabama passed its first legislative hurdle Wednesday as it passed through the House Constitution, Campaigns and Elections Committee.

A bill that would allow for no-excuse absentee voting in Alabama has support from the Secretary of State but faced some pushback during a public hearing on Wednesday.

A bill expected to be filed in the Alabama Legislature this week proposes to delay by seven weeks the 2022 primary and runoff election dates in order to give the Legislature more time to finalize new Congressional and State House district lines.

"It’s time for America to unite. And to heal," President-elect Biden said in a statement. President Trump has not conceded the race and plans to continue legal challenges to the results.
