Low voter Turnout in Alabama
Unofficial returns from Alabama's primary election show much lower voter turnout than four years ago. The preliminary numbers released by the state show about 613,000 people participated, which is about 22 percent. Four years ago, the turnout for the primary election was 32 percent. Secretary of State Jim Bennett had predicted a turnout of 25 to 27 percent. He's expecting even less people to vote in the runoff election on July 15.
