Alabama voters rejoined the presidential primary sweepstakes Tuesday, making a huge voter turnout across the state.

In Dothan, the numbers were also much higher as hundreds of local voters headed to the polls.

In order to be part of Super Tuesday, Alabama moved up its presidential primary from June to February.

Many feel that this year's campaign is breaking the mold of typical races.

Democratic Voter Amanda Muench says," Whether you're a Democrat or a Republican, you've got to admit its an exciting time to have an African American man and a woman on the ballot for a major political party; it’s something I thought I would never see in my lifetime."

With more than 58,000 new voters signing up in the three months leading up to Super Tuesday, Alabama election officials say it's a far higher turnout than in past presidential primaries.
