The 1952 United States presidential election in Alabama took place on November 4, 1952, as part of the 1952 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 John Sparkman, with 64.55% of the popular vote, against Columbia University President Dwight D. Eisenhower (RNew York), running with Senator Richard Nixon, with 35.02% of the popular vote.[4][5]

1952 marked the last time Montgomery and Jefferson counties would vote Democratic in a presidential election until 1996 and 2008 respectively, as both would become epicenters of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s.
