Trump wins county


Butler County residents turned out in record numbers for Election Day. Almost 65 percent of registered voters hit the polls or submitted their vote by absentee ballots. Most precincts reported long lines waiting on the doors to open at 7 a.m.

Among voting houses with large early turnout were McClains and Central. Both precincts have about 700 registered voters and by 9 a.m. McLains had 132 ballots cast and by 10 a.m. Central had 180.

Alabama voter registration statistics as of Sept. 30 show Butler County with 12,812 active and 805 inactive voters. An inactive voter is still eligible to vote. A voter’s status is changed from “active” to “inactive” on the poll list due to not voting in recent elections, or when tried to contact, via mailing address, the correspondence was returned.

There are 24 precincts in Butler County. 23 of them represent the five districts; the 24th is reserved for provisional ballots, those are ballots cast by a voter who went to a voting house but they were not on the list of registered voters. They are allowed to vote but they must cast a provisional ballot.

“The final tally won’t be official till later this week but the results will be very close to what has been reported”, said Probate Judge Steven Norman.
