Was there voter fraud in the December 12th special election in Alabama? The stunning victory to Doug Jones with a small lead of +1.5% has Moore supporters wondering. As results were pouring in, it was noted that Birmingham and Jefferson counties were not turning out Republican suburban votes.
Was there voter fraud in the special election?
Researching the numbers, it is noted that in the 2016 Trump VS Clinton election there were over one million Republicans who turned out to vote state wide. About 50% less Republicans voters did not vote in the special election state wide. To be exact 1,318,255 (R) vs 729,547 (D). In the special election, 2017 Moore VS Jones. 671,151(R) vs 650,436 (D). The difference is basically, almost 650,000 less Republican voters did not show up to vote. Or to be exact, – 647,104 (-49.9%) vs 79,111 (-10.8%). Why? Clearly, the democrats would like us to believe it was because they created an effective smear campaign and urban voters did not vote. Some are saying it is because bus loads of people were being shipped in out of State to vote Jones. And felons were being encouraged to vote. Wait until you see the proof in the video below that voter fraud did take place.
Voter fraud admitted on LIVE television.
Fox 10 out of Mobile, Alabama and also covers Baldwin county, caught some of the bussed people celebrating the Jones win on LIVE television. And what this guy said on public television is an unbelievable revelation! He admitted to voter fraud. Watch video below.
“Because we came here from all different parts of the county as part of our fellowship. And all of us pitched in to vote and canvass together. And we got our boy elected!”

Judge Roy Moore has not conceded the election. Moore is depending on the military vote that has not been counted. In Alabama, a difference of .05% triggers an automatic recount. And currently the win is at 1.5%. Moore has said that he will not concede until the Secretary of State, John Merrill certifies the election as late as January 3rd. John Merrill, Secretary of State in Alabama stated,
“We hope we’ll have the same level of participation that we had in the general election in 2016 when we set the standard for the nation with 84 percent of our military men and women casting absentee votes from their deployed locations.”
“After all the ballots are counted and Merrill’s office certifies the vote – if the margin is not close – Roy Moore can request and pay for a recount,” as per WHNT News in Alabama. And Merrill revealed that “a recount would cost somewhere between 1 and 1.5 million dollars. If there’s an automatic recount, the state will front that cost. If Moore requests a recount, the campaign would have to pay for it.”
