Alabama: provisional ballots will decide race for county school superintendent

The Prattville Progress reports: While more than one-fourth of Autauga County's eligible voters went to the polls on Tues­day, the race to determine the Republican candidate for coun­ty school superintendent could be decided by just over one-tenth of a percent of those vot­ers.

The validation or rejection by county Republican officials of eight provisional votes could provide school system person­nel director Greg Faulkner with the margin he needs to pre­vent a July 15 runoff with Pratt­ville High School Principal Lee Hicks. ...

Based on preliminary vote to­tals, Faulkner is headed for a showdown with Hicks to decide which of them would face Dem­ocrat Purvis Johnson in No­vember. Faulkner received 49.95 percent of the 6,571 votes cast in Tuesday's three-candi­date GOP primary and fell just short of a majority that would have given him the party's nomination out­right. --
