Alabama voters headed to the polls Tuesday in runoff primary elections primaries for the Senate, secretary of state and other elections.
Polls closed at 8 p.m. ET.
As the Democratic and Republican parties vie for control of the upper chamber of Congress, the Senate Republican primary runoff in Alabama underscores both the lingering effects of the 2020 election and also features a complicated timeline with former President Donald Trump’s shifting, influential endorsement.
The Republican runoff is between Katie Britt, retiring Sen. Richard Shelby's former chief of staff, and Rep. Mo Brooks of Huntsville.
Brooks initially secured former Trump's backing -- only to have it stripped because Trump considered Brooks too "woke" for suggesting voters should move on from the 2020 election, which Trump has continued to falsely claim he actually won.
Trump then endorsed Britt in early June.
Neither Britt or Brooks received more than 50% of the vote during the May 24 primary, triggering the runoff.
In Alabama’s GOP secretary of state runoff, state Auditor Jim Zeigler faces state Rep. Wes Allen. Their race could help determine who runs elections in the state. Allen has explicitly spoken against early voting and voting by mail while Zeigler told the Associated Press he has questions about the 2020 elections, although he does not deny the results.
