SYLACAUGA, Ala. — Polls have now closed across the state of Alabama, and Sylacauga voters among other Alabamians have chosen their winners.

From exit polling and historical trends, all major media news outlets project Donald Trump as the winner of Alabama’s nine electoral votes. Alabama, and its nine electoral votes, has commonly been regarded as a safe state for Trump in polls leading up to the election.

Sen. Richard Shelby, R-AL, will be returning to the United States Senate for his sixth term after facing no major opposition outside of the primary in March.

Sen. Mike Rogers, R-AL, is also projected to return to the House of Representatives representing Alabama’s Third Congressional District, home to Sylacauga and surrounding areas.

Results from the statewide amendments on the ballot are still too early to call in addition to the overall results of the Presidential and Congressional Elections.
