Voter turnout for Alabama's primary election Tuesday was much lower than four years ago.
Complete but unofficial returns from Tuesday's primary showed more than 613,000 people participated. That put the turnout at nearly 22 percent.
The turnout for the primary election four years ago was 32 percent, but both political parties had hot races for governor that year. The races for governor Tuesday were lopsided, with Republican incumbent Robert Bentley and Democrat Parker Griffith winning easily.
