More Than 700,000 Votes Expected In Alabama
More than 700,000 Alabama voters are expected at the polls Tuesday for the first election where voters will be required to show a photo ID.
Alabama's chief election official, Jim Bennett, is predicting that 25 percent to 27 percent of Alabama's 2.8 million registered voters will turn out for the primary election. That's down from 32 percent four years ago, when both parties had hotly contested races for governor.
This is the first election where voters have to show a photo ID. That can include a driver's license, non-driver ID, Alabama voter ID or passport.
The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Any primary races not decided on Tuesday will advance to a runoff July 15.
