ANNISTON, Ala. (AP) -- Numerous Alabama cities are holding municipal runoff elections, and the lines to vote likely won't be very long.
Jacksonville State University political scientist and former congressman Glen Browder says that such elections typically have a small turnout because few names are on the ballot.
Retired University of Alabama political scientist Bill Stewart says voter fatigue also plays a role in the slim turnouts.
Cities are holding runoff elections for mayor and city council statewide on Tuesday. In Birmingham, voters also decided bond issues totaling $150 million that would fund city projects.
