Alabama
Polls Open in State Primary
(2008-06-03)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Polls are now open statewide for Alabama's primary election.

The state's chief election official, Secretary of State Beth Chapman, predicts the turnout will be 12 percent to 15 percent. She says there are few hot races other than the 2nd and 5th Congressional Districts.

State Democratic Party Chairman Joe Turnham and state Republican Party Chairman Mike Hubbard are hoping for a little better turnout. Hubbard says the GOP turnout will likely be helped by hot races for the State Board of Education in the 1st District in southwest Alabama and the 3rd District in central Alabama.
