These Alabama counties supported Trump most

Secretary of State John H. Merrill has worked with local election officials to provide unofficial results from Alabama’s 2020 general election, and the numbers show which counties had the most lopsided results in the presidential race between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.

“I am proud to report that Alabama has continued in her standard for election excellence!” stated Merrill on Thursday. “While many states across the country are still processing mail-in and absentee ballots, all of Alabama’s 67 counties were reporting election results on election night.”

The Yellowhammer State county supporting Trump most by percentage was Winston (90.37%), closely followed by Cleburne (89.76%), Blount (89.57%), Marion (88.42%) and Cullman (88.15%).

Meanwhile, Macon County had the highest percentage support for Biden at (81.45%), barely coming in above Greene County (81.32%). Next came Bullock (74.71%), Perry (73.81%) and Lowndes (72.74%).

The certification of election results in Alabama will not occur until November 23. Until then, you can view the unofficial results here.

“The time, effort, and preparation that Alabama’s election officials put into making Tuesday’s election a success are commendable, and I am thankful for their collaboration and commitment,” Merrill concluded.
