Secretary of state predicts record turnout

Alabama Secretary of State is predicting a record number of voters will turn out in Alabama for the Nov. 4 general election.

Chapman says she is basing the prediction on the large number of voter registration applications being received daily at the Secretary of State’s office and by registrar’s in Alabama’s 67 counties.

Chapman says her office is receiving about 200 to 300 voter registration applications a day. She says that number far surpasses what has been seen prior to past elections.
