Alabama Election Turnout
The turnout for Alabama's election Tuesday was lower than normal and lower than expected. Nearly complete election results indicate that about 41 percent of Alabama's nearly 2.9 million active registered voters participated. A gubernatorial election traditionally attracts more than half of Alabama's voters. The secretary of state's office had predicted a lower-than-normal turnout of 48 percent to 50 percent because of the lack of hot races at the top of the ticket.
