No crowds for Alabama's primary election

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Election officials say Alabama voters planning to participate in the primary election don't have to worry about long lines or crowds at the polls.

Election officials describe the turnout as light to moderate.

The state's chief elections official, Secretary of State Beth Chapman, says she's received some complaints. They include a few people in Dallas County being unable to vote because someone had already cast absentee ballots in their names, and a complaint that someone in Bullock County was offering $10 to people willing to vote for a judicial candidate.

The polls stay open until 7 p.m. Tuesday.
