HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Despite long lines at many precincts in Huntsville, you may be surprised to hear voter turnout was slightly lower on Tuesday than it was in the 2008 presidential election.
Frank Barger, the Elections Coordinator for Madison County, said turnout was 66.55 percent on Tuesday. In 2008, it was 72 percent.
Barger said there are 333 provisional ballots. The Madison County Board of Registrars will oversee the process of canvassing and certifying those.
Provisional ballots can include those cast by voters who don’t have a form of identification, or who might not be on the electoral roll for a given precinct.
