Impressive and Surprising
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 1:27 pm

Via the Birmingham News: State gets record turnout of voters

Never before have as many Alabamians voted in a presidential election as they did in Tuesday’s contest and never has a winning candidate received the number of votes that George W. Bush did.

Unofficial and incomplete returns show that nearly 1.9 million Alabamians cast ballots for president on Tuesday. That amounts to about 72 percent of the state’s registered voters. The overall turnout figure is likely to go up because it does not include yet-to-be-counted provisional ballots, but for now, it stands at 1,883,574.

Given that there were not seriously contested statewide races on the ballot, that is a remarkable percentage.

And more underscoring of how “red” (man, how the meaning of words can change) Alabama is:

Democrats have lost seven consecutive presidential elections in Alabama. Their last victory came in 1976, when former Georgia Gov. Jimmy Carter carried 60 counties in winning 56 percent to 43 percent over Republican President Gerald Ford. In 1980, when he narrowly lost the state to challenger Ronald Reagan, Carter still carried 42 counties.

  2. Sate Turnout Good
    State turnout in Alabama was pretty good i would say. We got about 75% or so, which could go up.

    Poliblogger is reporting it probably will go up as the provisional ballots are counted.

  4. I knew there was a reason I loved Alabama.

    Or was it all those beautiful women?

  5. Definitely the women. The red stateness is nice too, I guess.
