Voting Starts Slowly in Alabama

By Associated Press

Undated, AL – Election Day got off to a slow start today in Alabama as rain fell across much of the state, keeping many voters away from the polls. Rather than a typical morning rush in Mobile County, Probate Judge Don Davis said the early turnout was very low. Thunderstorms dumped about three inches of rain overnight on the coast, but the weather improved. The chief registrar in Jefferson County, Nell Hunter, said voting was steady, but more people than normal were calling to check on their voting location. The morning turnout was low in Montgomery, but Madison County officials said there were some lines at balloting places in the Tennessee Valley.
