MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Republican Young Boozer has defeated Libertarian Scott Hammond to once again serve as Alabama treasurer, The Associated Press projects.

One of the most important roles for the treasurer is oversight of more than $1 billion in unclaimed property.


Boozer, the incumbent, previously held the office from 2010 to 2018. He was appointed to the role again in 2021 by Gov. Kay Ivey at the resignation of John McMillan.

Hammond has served as the treasurer of his local Libertarian affiliate in Madison County, as well as at the state level. There was no Democrat on the ballot.
