MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama voters go to the polls Tuesday for a runoff election that has more contested races on the Republican ballot than the Democratic ballot.

The Republican runoff has statewide contests for secretary of state, state auditor and Public Service Commission Place 2. There's also a runoff for the 6th Congressional District in the Birmingham area, as well as runoffs for six legislative seats and some county offices. The Democratic Party doesn't have any runoffs for statewide offices or congressional offices. It has runoffs for one legislative seat and some county offices. Only 20 of Alabama's 67 counties have a Democratic runoff.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Secretary of State Jim Bennett is expecting about 5 percent of Alabama voters to participate.
