The final tally confirms it will be a runoff between Randall Shedd and Danny Alldredge for the GOP nod for District 11 in the Alabama House of Representatives.  The winner faces Democrat Kelly Evans in an upcoming specially-called general election. See the final totals for all three counties below:

RANDALL SHEDD .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .       123   24.95

 

9:10 a.m.: It was close, but initial totals indicate Randall Shedd did not finish with enough votes to avoid a runoff for District 11. Shedd won approximately 47 percent of the vote, with Alldredge at 24 percent. The two will now face off in a runoff for the Republican nomination. Lydia Haynes placed third and Mike Graves placed fourth overall. Final totals coming soon.

8:55 p.m.: We are still waiting for the final Cullman County box, but Morgan County is now reporting final numbers. Shedd won out in the county, which will only help his chances to clinch the nomination outright. Mike Graves also had a strong showing in Morgan County, scoring his only second place finish in the three counties that make up the district:

DANNY ALLDREDGE  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .        57   19.59%
MIKE GRAVES.  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .        77   26.46%
LYDIA HAYNES  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .        64   21.99%
RANDALL SHEDD .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .        93   31.96%

 

8:39 p.m.: The final Cullman County box has arrived at the court house from Fairview. Results expected shortly. If Shedd has a strong showing, it could push him over the top with more than 51 percent of the vote, meaning he would win the Republican nomination outright. If Shedd fails to clinch 51 percent of the vote, a runoff will be required between him and the closest competing candidate, currently Danny Alldredge.

8:33 p.m.: Randall Shedd has a heavy overall lead, but the other candidates could force a runoff between Shedd and Danny Alldredge. It's still too close to call on whether or not a runoff will be required. Final totals from Blount County only make the results more murky, with Alldredge winning the majority of votes in that county:
