With national attention on Alabama’s Senate race between Democrat Doug Jones, and Republican Roy Moore, WAAY 31 wanted to know how write-in votes would be counted. “I will be voting for Roy Moore,” said Tuscumbia resident, Anethea Harper. Harper said she trusts Moore and, if she votes, then her ballot will go to him. The former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice is accsued of sexual misconduct by multiple women. “If he’s guilty then I think he will do the right thing and step aside,” said Harper.
Moore says he’s innocent and plans on staying in the race. Republican leaders are talking about a write-in campaign.
“I believe Luther Strange has done a pretty good job,” said Tuscumbia resident, David Herold. “I will do a write-in.”
Colbert County Probate Judge Daniel Rosser said if you want to cast a write-in vote, you must write the person’s name and fill in the bubble next to it, for it to be accurate.
