  • The United States presidential election in Alabama, 1968 was held on November 5, 1968.Southern segregationist candidate George Wallace, the former Governor of Alabama running as a third party candidate with his American Independent Party, won his home state in a high margin. Wallace received the official Democratic Party ballot line in Alabama, while national Democratic Party nominee Hubert H. Humphrey was forced to run on a fusion ticket of “Alabama Independent Democrat” and the National Democratic party ballot line.Wallace won 65.86% to Democrat Hubert Humphrey’s 18.72 percent, a 47.13 percent margin. Republican Richard Nixon, while narrowly winning the election nationally, finished a distant third in Alabama with only 13.99 percent.Wallace won 64 of the state’s 67 counties. As African-Americans in the South were slowly gaining the right to vote as a result of federal civil rights legislation passed in 1964 and 1965, Wallace’s weakest region was Alabama”s Black Belt, where he won most counties with narrow majorities or pluralities. He lost three counties in this region, Sumter County, Greene County, and Macon County, all with large black populations, to pro-civil rights candidate Hubert Humphrey. In black-majority Macon County, pro-civil rights Democrat Hubert Humphrey won a commanding landslide, taking 69.7% of the vote to Wallace’s 25.4%, reflecting the deep divide between the state’s white and black voter populations. As of the 2016 presidential election, this is the last election in which Mobile County, Shelby County, Baldwin County, Lee County, and Houston County were not carried by the Republican candidate and the last election in which Wilcox County, Lowndes County, and Bullock County were not carried by the Democratic candidate.
