As Alabama Senate Race Tightens, Voting Rights Lawyers May Sue State to Preserve Electronic Images of All Ballots

https://www.alternet.org/activism/alabam...nic-ballot

From the article:
Quote:Lawyers representing Alabama citizens may file a lawsuit within days to preserve electronic images of every paper ballot cast in next week’s high-profile special U.S. Senate election between Democrat Doug Jones and Republican Roy Moore.

As of late Tuesday, the lawyers were still in talks with Alabama election officials, urging them not only to preserve all election records—a requirement under federal law—but to ensure the electronic scanners that will read and count the ink-marked paper ballots are properly programmed to capture the digital ballot images.

“There are Alabama voters who have come forth seeking to enforce the federal requirement that all election materials be preserved for 22 months after the election,” said Chris Sautter, attorney for the Alabama voters. “It’s our understanding, having talked to state officials, that they preserve only the digital ballot images of the write-in ballots.”


...

The repubs are beside themselves, whining about Roy Moore, whining about Trump endorsing Roy Moore, etc. In the meantime, the democratic candidate Doug Jones is climbing in the polls, but that's no guarantee in the reddest of red states. After all, a man with child molestation allegations and has been removed from the state supreme court twice is still a viable candidate. The repubs are known cheaters, so keeping the actual votes is a good idea.

Conservatism (n.), the irrational fear that somewhere someone you think is inferior is being treated as your equal.
