The special election for Jeff Sessions’ senate seat is heating up, but voter turnout isn’t expected to be very high. Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill says he projects 20-25% of voters will go to the polls for the primary election on August 15th. He says a typical primary has a 30-32% turnout. Governor Bentley appointed Luther Strange to the seat, and he faces Republican challengers Roy Moore, Mo Brooks, Trip Pittman, and Randy Brinson. If none of those candidates gets 50% of the votes, the top two candidates will face off in a runoff on September 26th.
