Alabama's special election brought out more voters than predicted

High Voter Turnout in Lee County for Alabama's US Senate Special Election

Local county officials in Alabama say they saw a much higher voter turnout than expected in this Alabama special election.

A group of four Alabama voters filed a lawsuit last Thursday arguing that the state is required by law to preserve the images.

The temporary restraining order by Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Roman Ashley Shaul is a key step in verifying the vote in a controversial election, in case a vote count challenge or recount ensues.

A circuit judge on Monday ordered election officials to set voting machines to save all digital ballot images, which would preserve voting records in the event of a recount.

Merrill said an estimated 33 to 35 percent of Alabama's 3.3 million registered voters cast a ballot.

More than 22,000 write-in votes were ultimately cast. Moore denies the accusations.

Madison County went from 650 absentee ballot requests for the run off election in September to 3,411 for the special election, which is five times the number of request made three months earlier.
