Alabama Voters to Choose Primary Candidates

In less than a month Alabama voters will head to the polls. Primary elections in Alabama will be held June 1.

In the race for governor, Democratic Cong. Artur Davis is one of the front runners.

Although he is one of the leaders in fundraising, Davis says he is leaving nothing to chance.

"The last month of a campaign, unfortunately, is the time when some voters start to pay attention for the first time," said Davis. "So, we have to almost treat this last month as if we were having to make a new engagement with voters all around the state. We think we're in a very good position going into it, but we're going to have to keep working hard."

Others running for Alabama governor are:

Robert Bentley (R) - State Rep., Dermatologist & USAF Veteran
Bradley Byrne (R) - Former State Community College System Chancellor & Former State Sen.
Tim James (R) - Real Estate Developer, Son of former Gov. Fob James & '02 Candidate
Bill Johnson (R) - Former State Economic Development Director & Former Birmingham City Councilman
Roy Moore (R) - Former State Supreme Court Chief Justice, Religious Right Activist & '06 Candidate
James Potts (R) - Financial Analyst & USAF Veteran
Charles Taylor (R) - Construction Company Sales Representative
Ron Sparks (D) - State Agriculture Commissioner, Former DeKalb County Commissioner, Businessman & Coast Guard Veteran

    It is a conspiracy - that's the ticket! And I thought it was just a primary with a bunch of candidates. I find it amazing that people spend their time worrying about fraud in a primary, rather than the issues.

    We do have voter ID in Alabama, but a photo ID is not required. However, most voters whip out their driver licenses at the polls that obviously have a picture. For what it's worth, I believe Mississippi is looking at implementing mandatory photo ID.

    It was very refreshing and encouraging to see the "ID REQUIRED TO VOTE TODAY" signs on the Alabama polls. I hope that soon we can overpower the crooked politicians who oppose the VOTER ID law and free ourselves from the fraudulent voting. Of course this will seriously affect the rights of the DEAD to vote for the incumbents. We might even get to see what the elections would have looked like without the illegal activity.
