Steve Lolley and Larry Stutts

Absentee voting for the upcoming runoff election ended Thursday.

And if the number of absentee votes is any indication, Tuesday's voter turnout will be low.

Colbert County had only 53 absentee ballots. There were 26 in Franklin and 80 in Lauderdale.

“I really thought we would have more than this,” said Franklin County Circuit Clerk Anita Scott. “I hope people come out Tuesday and vote.”

There are six statewide races and a local legislative race on Tuesday’s runoff ballot. For Shoals voters the runoff election will feature only Republican races.

The only local regional race involves incumbent Sen. Larry Stutts, of Tuscumbia, and political newcomer Steve Lolley, of Guin.

The legislative district includes all of Colbert and Franklin counties, and portions of Lauderdale, Lawrence and Marion counties.

The statewide races include Lt. Governor, Attorney General, Commissioner of Agriculutre and Industries, Supreme Court Justice Place 1, Court of Civil Appeals Place 1, and Court of Criminal Appeals Place 2. or 256-740-5757. Twitter @TD_TomSmith.
