Republicans confident Trump will win Alabama

Voting is underway in Alabama and Republicans are confident that Donald Trump will win the state.

Democrat Hillary Clinton and Trump both visited Alabama during their respective primary battles, but both candidates have concentrated their efforts on battleground states.

Secretary of State John Merrill has predicted a record number of voters will cast ballots Tuesday after voter registration hit a record high of 3.3 million.

None of Alabama’s four U.S. House races or the lone Senate race on the ballot are expected to be very close given the name recognition and vast amounts of campaign money available to the Republican incumbents.

Alabama voters also face 14 amendments that will affect everything from state parks to the age of public officeholders to beer.

The polls will remain open until 7 p.m.
