(NewsNation) — NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ has called the U.S. Senate race in Alabama for Republican Katie Britt.
Britt fought off Democratic candidate Will Boyd in the race for retired Sen. Richard Shelby’s seat.
The same holds true for the governor’s race, where incumbent Republican Gov. Kay Ivey is expected to win over Democratic challenger Yolanda Flowers. Alabama leans strongly red, with the state going to each Republican presidential candidate since 2000.
Alabama residents will also vote on an amendment to the state constitution that would restrict changes in election laws within at least six months before a general election. Amendment 4 grew out of Republican concerns over changes to procedures during the 2020 election due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Tuesday, 470 U.S. congressional seats (35 Senate seats and all 435 House seats) are up for election. These elections will determine who has control over the two branches of Congress, and who will set the agenda for President Joe Biden’s remaining years in office.
Alabama absentee voting began on Sept. 14. Polling stations will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
