The 1956 United States presidential election in Alabama took place on November 6, 1956, as part of the 1956 United States presidential election. Alabama voters chose eleven[3] representatives, or electors, to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Alabama was won by Adlai Stevenson (DIllinois), running with Senator Estes Kefauver, with 56.52% of the popular vote against incumbent President Dwight D. Eisenhower (RPennsylvania), running with Vice President Richard Nixon, with 39.39% of the popular vote. Stevenson received ten of Alabama's eleven electoral votes; the eleventh was cast by a faithless elector to Walter B. Jones.[4][5] As of the 2016 presidential election, this is the last election in which Macon County voted for a Republican nominee and the last time that Houston County voted for a Democratic presidential candidate.[6]

Notes

  1. ^ Although he was born in Texas and grew up in Kansas before his military career, at the time of the 1952 election Eisenhower was president of Columbia University and was, officially, a resident of New York. During his first term as president, he moved his private residence to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and officially changed his residency to Pennsylvania.
