While there was a lot of attention paid to the runoff between Roy Moore and Luther Strange, a relatively small number of people came out to vote.

Information posted to the Alabama Secretary of State’s website says 14.39% of registered voters in the state cast a ballot.

That’s lower than the turnout for last month’s larger primary.

The Secretary of State’s office reported a voter turnout of 17.95%.  Lower turnouts are to be expected in primary runoffs on odd years.

People who voted in the Democratic primary last month could not vote in the Republican runoff yesterday.
