Cities Hold Runoff Elections http://apr.org/post/multiple-ala-cities-hold-runoff-elections Numerous Alabama cities are holding municipal runoff elections, and the lines to vote likely won't be very long. Jacksonville State University political scientist and former congressman Glen Browder says such elections typically have a small turnout because few names are on the ballot. Retired University of Alabama political scientist Bill Stewart says voter fatigue also plays a role in the slim turnouts. Cities held runoff elections for mayor and city council statewide on Tuesday.
