Top Alabama voting official foresees 35-38 percent turnout Tuesday

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama's chief election official, Secretary of State Beth Chapman, is expecting 35 to 38% of Alabama's registered voters to turn out for Tuesday's election.

That would be in line with the turnout for the 2002 and 2006 gubernatorial primaries.

Tuesday's primary will be different from those two because it falls the day after Memorial Day instead of a week after the holiday.

Chapman said voter turnout may be hurt by that, but hot races in both parties for governor and attorney general should encourage voters to get to the polls.

Scattered showers are predicted for Election Day in the area, but worrying about getting wet is no reason not to vote -- simply log on to WSFA.com, and click on the interactive radar, which will show you what the weather is doing down to the street level.
