WIREGRASS, Ala. (WDHN) — Although all counties in Alabama held runoff races on Tuesday, only two Wiregrass counties had local runoff races on the ballot. See below how Houston and Henry County turnout.
According to Henry County Probate Judge David Money out of 12,679 active registered voters in Henry County, 3,127 voted on Tuesday. That puts the voter participation rate at 24.7%.
Voter turnout across Houston County and the state was consistent with a runoff election.
Houston County Probate Judge Patrick Davenport, who oversees local elections, tells WDHN news that the total turnout in Houston County was 14.71% percent of the registered voters.
He says that’s a pretty good turnout considering there weren’t a lot of close top-of-the-ticket races. And there weren’t many contested local races.
Voter turnout across Alabama averaged 12.74%, according to the secretary of state’s office.
