A spot check of probate judges Tuesday found most reporting light turnout, which is expected in primary runoffs.

The biggest statewide race on the ballot is the Republican runoff for governor between Bradley Byrne and Robert Bentley, which is expected to make the GOP turnout larger than the Democratic vote.

Democrats are deciding runoffs for attorney general and the 7th Congressional District seat.

It's unclear if there is much crossover voting in the GOP race for governor.

Byrne accused state teacher lobbyist Paul Hubbert of trying to defeat him by urging those who voted Democratic on June 1 to cross over and cast ballots for Bentley.

In Choctaw County, Sheriff James Lovette is opposed by former chief deputy, Lee Henry McGrew in the Democratic runoff.

In Sumter County, Thomas Lewis and Tyrone Clark are in a Democratic runoff for sheriff.

There is also a runoff for Sumter County Commission, District 5, between Robert Smith and Ottice Russelle.
