Election day got off to a slow start Tuesday in Alabama as rain falls across much of the state.
Rather than a typical morning rush in Mobile County, Probate Judge Don Davis said the early turnout is very low. Thunderstorms dumped about three inches of rain overnight on the coast, but the weather was improving.
The chief registrar in Jefferson County, Nell Hunter, said voting was steady, but more people than normal were calling to check on their voting location.
The morning turnout was low in Montgomery, but Madison County officials said there were some lines at balloting places in the Tennessee Valley.
