Thursday was the final day for most residents of Alabama to walk in to their circuit clerk's office and vote absentee.
As in years past, officials in Sumter County say absentee votes are expected to count for a large portion of the total votes cast.
By midday, 750 absentee ballots had been submitted in Sumter County.
"I'm going to be visiting my daughter, so I had to do that. I missed voting. I've voted ever since the 1950s," said Betty Wallace, who cast her absentee ballot.
Alabama voters who have a medical emergency and will not be able to make it to the polls Tuesday will be allowed to vote absentee Monday at their county circuit clerk's office.
