These 10 counties play an important role in these primary elections. Even if a candidate does not achieve a sizable majority in one of the larger counties (Jefferson, Mobile), they can still take the lead by capturing very large minorities in several counties.
Although Joe Biden won in Jefferson and Mobile, he could not achieve a victory since Donald Trump captured so many voters across most counties. This gave Donald Trump an upper hand in the state of Alabama.
