Top election official predict moderate turnout for Tuesday vote

Montgomery, Al – - Alabama's chief election official,
Secretary of State Beth Chapman, is expecting 35 percent to 38
percent of Alabama's registered voters to turn out for Tuesday's
election.
That would be in line with the turnout for the 2002 and 2006
gubernatorial primaries.
Tuesday's primary will be different from those two because it
falls the day after Memorial Day instead of a week after the
holiday.
Chapman said voter turnout may be hurt by that, but hot races in
both parties for governor and attorney general should encourage
voters to get to the polls.
