The foundational document for Alabama's government is the Alabama Constitution , which was ratified in At almost amendments and , words, it is by some accounts the world's longest constitution and is roughly forty times the length of the United States Constitution.
There has been a significant movement to rewrite and modernize Alabama's constitution. Most counties do not have home rule. Any policy changes proposed in different areas of the state must be approved by the entire Alabama legislature and, frequently, by state referendum.
One criticism of the current constitution claims that its complexity and length intentionally codify segregation and racism. Alabama's government is divided into three coequal branches. The legislative branch is the Alabama Legislature , a bicameral assembly composed of the Alabama House of Representatives , with members, and the Alabama Senate , with 35 members.
The Legislature is responsible for writing, debating, passing, or defeating state legislation. The Republican Party currently holds a majority in both houses of the Legislature. The Legislature has the power to override a gubernatorial veto by a simple majority most state Legislatures require a two-thirds majority to override a veto. Until , the state elected state senators on a geographic basis by county, with one per county.
It had not redistricted congressional districts since passage of its constitution in ; as a result, urbanized areas were grossly underrepresented. It had not changed legislative districts to reflect the decennial censuses, either.
Sims , the US Supreme Court implemented the principle of " one man, one vote ", ruling that congressional districts had to be reapportioned based on censuses as the state already included in its constitution but had not implemented.
Further, the court ruled that both houses of bicameral state legislatures had to be apportioned by population, as there was no constitutional basis for states to have geographically based systems. At that time, Alabama and many other states had to change their legislative districting, as many across the country had systems that underrepresented urban areas and districts. This had caused decades of underinvestment in such areas.
Through the legislative delegations, the Alabama legislature kept control of county governments. The executive branch is responsible for the execution and oversight of laws. It is headed by the Governor of Alabama. The current governor of the state is Republican Kay Ivey. The office of lieutenant governor is currently vacant. The members of the Legislature take office immediately after the November elections. Statewide officials, such as the governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, and other constitutional officers, take office the following January.
The judicial branch is responsible for interpreting the Constitution and applying the law in state criminal and civil cases. The state's highest court is the Supreme Court of Alabama. Alabama uses partisan elections to select judges. Since the s judicial campaigns have become increasingly politicized. There are two intermediate appellate courts , the Court of Civil Appeals and the Court of Criminal Appeals, and four trial courts: Some critics believe that the election of judges has contributed to an exceedingly high rate of executions.
In some years, it imposes more death sentences than does Texas , a state which has a population five times larger. Alabama levies a 2, 4, or 5 percent personal income tax , depending upon the amount earned and filing status. Taxpayers are allowed to deduct their federal income tax from their Alabama state tax, and can do so even if taking the standard deduction.
Taxpayers who file itemized deductions are also allowed to deduct the Federal Insurance Contributions Act tax Social Security and Medicare tax. Most states exempt groceries from sales tax or apply a lower tax rate. Alabama's income tax on poor working families is among the highest in the United States. The corporate income tax rate is currently 6. The overall federal, state, and local tax burden in Alabama ranks the state as the second least tax-burdened state in the country.
The current state constitution requires a voter referendum to raise property taxes. Since Alabama's tax structure largely depends on consumer spending, it is subject to high variable budget structure. Alabama has 67 counties. Each county has its own elected legislative branch, usually called the county commission. It also has limited executive authority in the county.
Because of the constraints of the Alabama Constitution , which centralizes power in the state legislature, only seven counties Jefferson, Lee, Mobile, Madison, Montgomery, Shelby, and Tuscaloosa in the state have limited home rule.
Instead, most counties in the state must lobby the Local Legislation Committee of the state legislature to get simple local policies approved, ranging from waste disposal to land use zoning. The state legislature has retained power over local governments by refusing to pass a constitutional amendment establishing home rule for counties, as recommended by the Alabama Constitutional Commission.
United States Supreme Court decisions in Baker v. Carr required that both houses have districts established on the basis of population, and redistricted after each census, in order to implement the principle of "one man, one vote".
Before that, each county was represented by one state senator, leading to under-representation in the state senate for more urbanized, populous counties. The rural bias of the state legislature, which had also failed to redistrict seats in the state house, affected politics well into the 20th century, failing to recognize the rise of industrial cities and urbanized areas.
Alabama's constitution has been amended more than times, and almost one-third of the amendments are local in nature, applying to only one county or city.
A significant part of each legislative session is spent on local legislation, taking away time and attention of legislators from issues of statewide importance.
Alabama is an alcoholic beverage control state , meaning that the state government holds a monopoly on the sale of alcohol. The Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board controls the sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages in the state.
Twenty-five of the 67 counties are " dry counties " which ban the sale of alcohol, and there are many dry municipalities even in counties which permit alcohol sales. In , the political coalition of white Democrats known as the Redeemers took control of the state government from the Republicans, in part by suppressing the black vote through violence, fraud and intimidation.
After , a coalition of White Democratic politicians passed laws to segregate and disenfranchise African American residents, a process completed in provisions of the constitution.
Provisions which disenfranchised blacks resulted in excluding many poor Whites. By more Whites than Blacks had been disenfranchised: The total effects were greater on the black community, as almost all of its citizens were disfranchised and relegated to separate and unequal treatment under the law. From through the s, the state did not redraw election districts as population grew and shifted within the state during urbanization and industrialization of certain areas.
As counties were the basis of election districts, the result was a rural minority that dominated state politics through nearly three-quarters of the century, until a series of federal court cases required redistricting in to meet equal representation.
Alabama state politics gained nationwide and international attention in the s and s during the civil rights movement , when whites bureaucratically, and at times violently, resisted protests for electoral and social reform. Governor George Wallace , the state's only four-term governor, was a controversial figure who vowed to maintain segregation.
Only after passage of the federal Civil Rights Act of  and Voting Rights Act of did African Americans regain the ability to exercise suffrage, among other civil rights.
In many jurisdictions, they continued to be excluded from representation by at-large electoral systems, which allowed the majority of the population to dominate elections. Some changes at the county level have occurred following court challenges to establish single-member districts that enable a more diverse representation among county boards.
In , the Alabama Legislature passed, and Republican Governor Bob Riley signed a resolution expressing "profound regret" over slavery and its lingering impact. In , Republicans won control of both houses of the legislature for the first time in years, after a nearly complete realignment of political parties, who represent different visions in the 21st century. As of December , there are a total of 3,, registered voters, with 2,, active, and the others inactive in the state. With the disfranchisement of Blacks in , the state became part of the " Solid South ", a system in which the Democratic Party operated as effectively the only viable political party in every Southern state.
Since the mid to late 20th century, however, there has been a realignment among the two major political parties, and white conservatives started shifting to the Republican Party. In Alabama, majority-white districts are now expected to regularly elect Republican candidates to federal, state and local office. Members of the nine seats on the Supreme Court of Alabama  and all ten seats on the state appellate courts are elected to office.
Until , no Republicans held any of the court seats. In that general election, the then-incumbent Chief Justice, Ernest C. Hornsby , refused to leave office after losing the election by approximately 3, votes to Republican Perry O. Hornsby sued Alabama and defiantly remained in office for nearly a year before finally giving up the seat after losing in court. This ultimately led to a collapse of support for Democrats at the ballot box in the next three or four election cycles.
The Democrats lost the last of the nineteen court seats in August with the resignation of the last Democrat on the bench. In the early 21st century, Republicans hold all seven of the statewide elected executive branch offices. Republicans hold six of the eight elected seats on the Alabama State Board of Education. In , Republicans took large majorities of both chambers of the state legislature, giving them control of that body for the first time in years.
The last remaining statewide Democrat, who served on the Alabama Public Service Commission was defeated in Only two Republican Lieutenant Governors have been elected since the end of Reconstruction, when Republicans generally represented Reconstruction government, including the newly emancipated freedmen who had gained the franchise.
The two GOP Lt. Governors were Steve Windom — and Kay Ivey Many rural counties have voters who are majority Democrats, resulting in local elections being decided in the Democratic primary. Similarly many metropolitan and suburban counties are majority-Republican and elections are effectively decided in the Republican Primary, although there are exceptions.
Alabama's 67 County Sheriffs are elected in partisan, at-large races, and Democrats still retain the narrow majority of those posts. The current split is 35 Democrats , 31 Republicans , and one Independent Fayette. The state's two U. Shelby and Democrat Doug Jones. Shelby was originally elected to the Senate as a Democrat in and re-elected in , but switched parties immediately following the November general election.
House of Representatives , the state is represented by seven members, six of whom are Republicans: Bradley Byrne , Mike D. Rogers , Robert Aderholt , Morris J. Terri Sewell who represents the Black Belt as well as most of the predominantly black portions of Birmingham , Tuscaloosa and Montgomery.
Public primary and secondary education in Alabama is under the purview of the Alabama State Board of Education as well as local oversight by 67 county school boards and 60 city boards of education. Together, 1, individual schools provide education for , elementary and secondary students. Public school funding is appropriated through the Alabama Legislature through the Education Trust Fund. While Alabama's public education system has improved in recent decades, it lags behind in achievement compared to other states.
