Katie Britt cast her vote early this morning in Montgomery as she nears the end of her campaign for U.S. Senate.

The former CEO of the Business Council of Alabama and chief of staff for outgoing senator Richard Shelby is expected to comfortably clinch the seat today over Democrat and Libertarian opposition.

“Seeing so many children and parents come out to cheer us on this morning reinforced why we’re doing this — to preserve the American Dream for generations to come,” Britt said at the polls. “We are blown away by the enthusiasm we’ve seen in every corner of our state. It is clear that Alabamians are ready to send a loud and clear message at the ballot box today, and we are truly grateful for the prayers, encouragement, volunteer work, and support from so many people across Alabama. I will work tirelessly every single day in the U.S. Senate to make Alabama proud. Please remind your family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues to get out the vote, because our future is on the ballot. Together, we’ll save the country we know and love for our children and our children’s children.”

Will Boyd is the Democrat nominee for the Senate, while John Sophocleus is the Libertarian choice for the seat.

In addition to the Senate race, voters can make their voices heard today on a variety of statewide offices including governor, lieutenant governor and Secretary of State as well as their local legislative races.

The polls are open until 7 p.m. Photo identification is required.
