On June 1st there was a very low turnout of voters. For whatever reason, lots of folks made a decision to stay home. But the low turnout probably shouldn’t have been that big of a surprise. Most Alabamians were sick and tired of all the negative television ads and all the mudslinging. I believe that had lots to do with the low turnout. There were some surprises in the margins of victory in some of the races. Perhaps the biggest news has turned out to be the drama surrounding the recount in the GOP gubernatorial race. There was no change after the recount was completed. There will be a run-off between Bradley Byrne and Dr. Robert Bentley. Only 28% of registered voters turned out to vote which was a very poor turnout. This should be recognized as a sign of disgust with all of the negative campaigning that the public was subjected to by all too many candidates.
