CROSSOVER VOTING NOT ALLOWED IN RUNOFF ELECTION

By WVUA 23 Web Writer Alley Paquin

The Tuscaloosa County Democratic Party is reminding voters that “crossover” voting will not be allowed in the GOP runoff election between Luther Strange and Roy Moore today.

Voters will not be allowed to blur party lines and vote in both primaries. If you voted in the Democratic primary, that means you cannot vote in the GOP runoff primary today.

If you did not vote, or voted in the GOP primary, you can vote.

Nick Rose, Chairperson of Tuscaloosa County Democrats, said the Secretary of State’s office is watching closely and is “attempting to find someone to make a poster child out of” during the runoff election.

“The Secretary of State’s office has indicated they will be keeping a close eye on this,” Nick Rose said. “We want to make sure the Democrats in Tuscaloosa are well aware that if you voted, do not vote in the Republican runoff.

The winner of the runoff election will face Democratic nominee Doug Jones in the general election on Dec. 12.
