The midterm election is now behind us and it was a tough night for Alabama Democrats. The party was absent from many of the statewide races and some democratic candidates say they had no support from the Alabama Democratic Party.
Election officials are not expecting a large turnout at polling places on Tuesday, November 8. Leaders said since this isn’t a presidential election year, they expect around 45-50% of voters to participate.
“I’m going to be making a very big announcement on Tuesday, Nov. 15 at Mar-a-Lago,” Trump said before a cheering crowd in Vandalia, Ohio Monday night, where he was holding his final rally of the midterm season to bolster Senate candidate JD Vance.
Midterm elections are days away, but a looming Supreme Court decision could impact future elections. Merrill v Milligan would be the second Alabama case decision impacting voting procedures, the first being Shelby v Holder, back in 2013.
Alabamians will head to the polls on Nov. 8 to vote for the state’s next group of elected officials. On the ticket for lieutenant governor are Republican incumbent Will Ainsworth and Libertarian Ruth Page-Nelson.
