Montgomery, AL (WKRG)
While there was a lot of attention paid to the runoff between Roy Moore and Luther Strange, a relatively small number of people came out to vote.
Information posted to the Alabama Secretary of State’s website says 14.39% of registered voters in the state cast a ballot.
That’s lower than the turnout for last month’s larger primary.
The Secretary of State’s office reported a voter turnout of 17.95%. Lower turnouts are to be expected in primary runoffs on odd years.
People who voted in the Democratic primary last month could not vote in the Republican runoff yesterday.
