Alabama results for every midterm race
Nearly a year after Alabamans shocked the nation by voting to send Democrat Doug Jones to the US Senate, the state seems set to have a much quieter election night in 2018.
Republican Gov. Kay Ivey, who took office after her predecessor resigned amid scandal last year, is running for her first full term. Her Democratic challenger is Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox. Polls have shown Ivey solidly ahead.
Of the state’s seven US House of Representatives races, none are expected to be competitive. Republicans currently hold six of those seats, and all of those districts are deeply conservative. No US Senate races are on the ballot.
Somewhat unusually, the entire Alabama state legislature is on the ballot today as well, and the newly elected members of the state House and Senate will serve four-year terms. Republicans currently have enormous majorities in both chambers.
Alabama will also be voting on ballot initiatives related to abortion and display of the Ten Commandments. President Trump remains consistently popular here, with Morning Consult putting his approval ratings above 60 percent.
