Vote on Tuesday for runoff elections

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) – The day for runoff elections has many candidates on the last few hours of their campaigns.

On Monday, Republican candidates for governor Robert Bentley and Bradley Byrne made campaign stops in Birmingham to push for votes. The winner of the race will face Democrat Ron Sparks in the main election.

On the Democratic side, Birmingham attorney Terri Sewell and Jefferson County Commissioner Shelia Smoot are working to get out their vote in the runoff for the heavily-democratic District Seven Congressional District. Sewell led Smoot in the June 1st primary. They are vying for Artur Davis' congressional seat. The winner of Tuesday's race will face the winner of the Republican runoff between Don Chamberlin and Cris Salter.

The only major statewide race on the Democratic ballot Tuesday is for attorney general. Giles Perkins and James Anderson face off in that race. The winner meets Republican Luther Strange in November.

Alabama Republicans will also be making a choice in agriculture commissioner. John McMillan and Dorman Grace appear on the ballot. The winner faces Democrat Glen Zorn.

The polls are open from 7:00 a.m to 7:00 p.m. Tuesday. Officials are worried about low turnout because of the small number of races and the possibility of people on vacation.
