HOUSTON COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — On Tuesday, Alabamians will be heading to the polls and casting a ballot in the state’s 2022 Primary Election.

In Houston County, poll workers have been preparing for the primary election since last week. On Monday afternoon, officials distributed ballots and voting equipment to all precincts in the county.

According to the Houston County’s Probate Office, this year they expect a 32% turnout, which slightly higher turnout than usual.

Despite predictions, Houston County Chairman, Mark Culver, encourages all voters in the county to go out and vote in the election. He says the probate office has notified him that they are fully ready and don’t expect any problems.

Culver also wants to remind everyone that polls open tomorrow at 7:00 a.m. and will be open till 7:00 p.m.

“We hope people won’t take it for granted,” Culver tells WDHN. “We want you to get out and vote in whatever primary you choose to vote in, we have a lot of important races.”

Culver encourages anyone with last-minute questions about the election to reach out to the county’s probate judge’s office.
