MONTGOMERY, Ala. (EETV)- This Tuesday morning Alabama voters head to the polls for the 2018 midterm primary election.

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill estimates over 800,000 Alabama voters will turn out at polls across the state.

“We anticipate between 25 and 30 percent of our eligible voters to participate in the process,” said Merrill.

Merrill says that around 26 counties will have electronic poll books that are aimed at helping to make the check in process easier at polling locations.

“We have those electronic poll books that will reduce the wait time 60-75 percent for those counties that are using them” said Merrill.
