Small Crowds of Voters Turnout for AL-01 Race

Small Crowds of Voters Turnout for AL-01 Race

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Alabama -

It's Election Day but the crowd of people casting their ballots is a bit thin, especially in Mobile County.

It wasn’t unexpected, but it was a little a disappointing for some, especially the people who did come out to vote.

“I have found through the years that even the people that I vote for or people I support win, sooner or later they will do something I don't like and if don't go vote I don't feel like I can complain, so I always try to go vote,” said Rennie Berbner.

Granted many may have voter fatigue after just going through a mobile mayoral campaign and this election is only part one of a series of elections for the race that will stretch into December.

“I think that this is a seemingly small thing because it is a very treasured privilege that I think a lot of people take for granted and it’s something that I always try to do when I get the chance,” said Andrew Browning.

This is a congressional seat that has long been held by republicans and with a vacancy there is no shortage of candidates Voters can choose from nine republicans almost assuring a runoff.

“I think that it is important that we do have strong leadership and continue with what our representative Bonner did in Washington and just somebody who can work with the folks up there. I think there has been a big deadlock. We need somebody that can work within that framework,” said Sandra Forbus.
