In a stunning upset over Republican Roy Moore, Democrat Doug Jones is the projected winner in Tuesday's Alabama Senate race, according to an NBC News projection. Here's how the big night unfolded.

1819d ago / 6:09 AM UTC

That's a wrap. Here are the highlights from Election Night.

NBC News projected Doug Jones the apparent winner of an extraordinary election that resulted in Alabama voters sending a Democrat to the Senate for the first time since 1992. Thanks for sticking with us.

Here are the highlights from Election Night:

  • Democrat Doug Jones stunned the political world by defeating Republican Roy Moore in a contentious race that was flipped on its head after decades-old allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced against Moore. African-Americans, women and moderates helped fuel Jones' win with stronger than expected turnout.  
  • Moore has refused to concede, however, and told supporters the race is not over in a speech late Tuesday. The Alabama Republican Party has acknowledged Jones as the winner and said in a statement "we respect the voting process."
  • Republican finger pointing began immediately after the results became clear. 
  • For the second time in as many months, Democrats were energized by important electoral victories they painted as a rebuke of Republicans and President Donald Trump. Last month, Democrat Ralph Northam won a hotly contested governor's race in Virginia.
  • Jones' apparent victory is the second loss for Trump in the Alabama race. The candidate he endorsed ahead of the GOP primary, Sen. Luther Strange, fell to Moore in September. He then endorsed Moore in the final weeks of the general election.

Thousands of write-in votes to be counted next week

The large number of write-in votes in Tuesday night’s race — 22,780, according to the Alabama Secretary of State’s office — may have helped propel Doug Jones to victory.

Those ballots, however, won’t be counted until next Tuesday, leaving watchers of the tight Alabama race to wonder exactly how many votes prominent write-in candidates, including incumbent Sen. Luther Strange and Lee Busby, a retired Marine colonel, received.

Counting those write-ins, however, could also reveal additional votes for either Jones or Moore, which could, in theory, trigger a recount.

With 99 percent of precincts reporting Tuesday night, Jones had 673,236 votes, while Moore had 652,300 — a difference of 20,936. That number is less than the 22,780 write-in votes, meaning, theoretically, that Moore could have appeared as a write-in candidate on enough ballots to win.

Under Alabama election laws, a recount is required if the margin of victory is within 0.5 percent.

Farmer whose gay daughter committed suicide says he's hopeful after Jones' victory

and

Nathan Mathis, a peanut farmer who said his gay daughter committed suicide, told NBC News that he hopes Jones' apparent victory Tuesday night improves how politicians talk about gay Americans.

“Hopefully people in politics will stop using gay folk to bash them. The voters need to make them stop that. There’s a lot more people gay than people realize," he told NBC News after major news organizations called the race for Jones. 

Mathis stood outside a Moore rally on Monday night, imploring voters not to vote for the GOP candidate who has frequently espoused anti-LGBT views. He told his story to NBC News, which went viral, admitting that he had once been anti-gay himself and said "bad things" to his daughter which he now regrets.

Mathis said Tuesday night that he had struggled with his decision to protest on Monday, but ultimately credited Jones' victory to Democrats and Republicans who wrote in other candidates.

"I wrestled with myself about what I did last night," he said. "I’m really happy and hope and pray Doug will do a good job and help unite everybody. Help unite people and maybe get something done in Washington."

After refusing to concede, Moore has not called Jones

Roy Moore has not called Doug Jones to congratulate him on his apparent win or concede the race, a senior Jones campaign official confirms to NBC News.

Moore insisted Tuesday night that the race is too close to call and told supporters they are investigating the process for a recount.

With 99 percent of the vote in, Jones was leading 50-48 percent, or 673,236 votes to 652,300 votes — a margin of more than 20,000. The current margin appears too great for an automatic recount, which is triggered if the candidates are separated by less than half a percentage point, but Moore could call for a recount if he's willing to pay for one himself.

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill told CNN that it is “highly unlikely” the outcome of the race will change.

"There's not a whole lot of errors that occur," he said.

Meanwhile, the Alabama GOP released a statement acknowledging Jones' apparent win, saying that “while we are deeply disappointed...we respect the voting process given to us by our Founding Fathers."

1819d ago / 5:02 AM UTC

Exit poll: Black voters, women, moderates fueled Jones' apparent win

Jones pulled off a narrow apparent victory over his Republican opponent thanks to several key groups. Stronger than expected turnout — especially from African-Americans — helped Jones overcome the state's conservative slant, echoing results Democrats have seen in other races this year.

Jones got support from a majority of black voters (96 percent), women (57 percent), moderates (74 percent) and those under 45 (61 percent). 

Meanwhile, 52 percent of voters overall said that the allegations of sexual misconduct against Moore were definitely or probably true. These voters broke for Jones by a 81 point margin (89 percent to 8 percent, respectively).

Roy Moore won't concede, tells supporters 'it's not over'

Roy Moore refused to acknowledge defeat Tuesday night despite his opponent Doug Jones being declared the apparent winner. According to NBC News, Jones is up some 20,000 votes with 99 percent of votes counted.

“When the vote is this close, it’s not over,” Moore told supporters at his election night rally. “Part of the problem with this campaign is that we’ve been painted in an unfavorable and unfaithful light. We’ve been put in a hole."

He concluded: "Let this process play out.”

Jones vows unity, progress in victory speech

An ebullient Doug Jones vowed to build bipartisan bridges in Washington and Alabama alike in his victory night speech Tuesday night, speaking to a crowd that could hardly contain their enthusiasm long enough to let him speak.

“I have always believed that the people of Alabama have more in common than divides us," Jones said. “We have shown the country the way that we can be unified.”

He thanked volunteers and praised their efforts to get out the vote — including 300,000 door knocks and 1.2 million phone calls — and particularly thanked minority voters who came out in historic numbers to support his candidacy.

Jones challenged his Washington colleagues to take his election as a sign that voters want progress, not politics. He did not speak about the sexual misconduct allegations that dogged opponent Roy Moore, or Moore's extreme views on gay Americans, slavery, and Muslims.

Instead, he argued his victory was one for justice and morality.

“At the end of the day, this entire race has been about dignity and respect. This campaign has been about the rule of law," he said. "This campaign has been about common courtesy and decency and making sure everyone in this state, regardless of which zip code you live in, is gonna get a fair shake in life."

Democrats rejoice after Alabama race called for Jones

1819d ago / 4:00 AM UTC

GOP finger-pointing begins moments after Jones' apparent win

The Republican finger-pointing began just moments after it appeared Democrat Doug Jones had defeated Republican Roy Moore.

“Not only did Steve Bannon cost us a critical Senate seat in one of the most Republican states in the country, but he also dragged the President of the United States into his fiasco,” the Mitch McConnell-aligned Senate Leadership Fund said in a statement.

Bannon, President Donald Trump’s former chief strategist, railed against McConnell and establishment Republicans while helping push Moore’s controversial candidacy. Trump had endorsed Moore’s Republican primary opponent, Sen. Luther Strange, but supported Moore ahead of Tuesday’s general election despite multiple allegations against Moore of sexual misconduct.

NBC News: Doug Jones is apparent winner in Alabama

Doug Jones is the apparent winner in the Alabama Senate race, according to the NBC News Decision Desk, beating out Republican Roy Moore in a stunning upset.

He is the first Democrat to win a Senate seat in deep-red Alabama in decades, pulling out a stunning but slim victory in a race most believed was decided by the Republican primary six weeks ago.

Jones was catapulted into a surprisingly competitive race after Moore was accused of sexual misconduct by nine women. He campaigned heavily in the final weeks of the election — particularly appealing to black voters whose historic turnout helped boost his campaign to a win — while Moore shunned the spotlight in an attempt to weather the accusations.

Booker: Former Senate pages 'outraged' over Moore candidacy

Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., said former Senate pages have contacted him to express their “outrage” over Roy Moore’s possible election.

Pages are high school students, age 16 or older, who work on Capitol Hill. Booker is among the Democratic lawmakers who have publicly expressed concerns for their safety if Moore, who is accused of making sexual advances towards teenagers, is elected.  

“Someone who is banned from a mall does not belong in the United States Senate,” Booker told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, referencing a media report that Moore was banned from an Alabama mall for inappropriate behavior. Moore has denied the allegations and ever being banned from the mall.

Booker also said Democrat Doug Jones has energized African-American voters who will be key if he is to defeat Moore in deep-red Alabama.

Jones leads in Talladega, Alabama’s bellwether county

Doug Jones is leading in bellwether Talladega County, NBC News reported Tuesday.

Jones leads there by two points. As of Tuesday evening at 9:57 p.m., NBC News was still characterizing the overall statewide race as too close to call.

The midsize county has racial demographics that are fairly representative of the state as a whole — about two-thirds of the county's residents are white — and it's historically been a good predicator of how the state will vote.

In the 2016 presidential election, as NBC News' Jonathan Allen reported earlier today, Trump won 62 percent statewide and 61.7 percent in Talladega. Similarly, when Moore won the primary runoff against Sen. Luther Strange in September, he took 52.7 percent of the county's Republican votes, compared to the 54.6 percent he won across Alabama.

1819d ago / 2:52 AM UTC

How will Jones do in Alabama's most densely populated areas?

One of the big remaining questions in this race — which is still too close to call, according to NBC News' Decision Desk — is how Doug Jones will perform in Alabama’s most densely populated areas, including Mobile and Montgomery (where very little of the vote has been counted yet) and Jefferson — the state’s largest county and home to the city of Birmingham.

Jefferson County, like many other large counties in America, has been growing more and more Democratic. It voted for Republicans in presidential contests as recently as 2004 but has become a pretty solid liberal bastion even as the rest of the state has become dramatically redder.

In fact, the divergence between Jefferson and the rest of Alabama since 2000 is one of the most dramatic trend lines of any state in the country, according to an analysis by NBC News last month. 

We won’t know how significant Jones’ margins are in those large urban counties until we see more votes, but it’s fair to say that this election is likely to underscore the growing divide between urban and rural areas around the United States.

Exit poll: Parents prefer Jones, while those without kids like Moore

Voters with kids under 18 still living at home favor Democrat Doug Jones by a 14-point margin, while those without children favor Moore by 3 points, according to NBC News exit poll results. 

This preference is evident in other attitudes as well — especially related to sexual misconduct allegations levied against Moore in the weeks prior to the election. Parents are more likely to say they think the allegations against Moore are true. Voters without children are more split.  

Meanwhile, moms are also more likely than dads to say they think the allegations against Roy Moore are true.

Voters already in line at poll closing can still cast ballots

Alabama polls closed at 7 p.m. local time, 8 p.m. ET, but votes are still being cast: Those in line at the time polls closed are still legally allowed to cast their ballot.

Doug Jones allies — including actress Alyssa Milano who is on the ground in Alabama today — are urging voters to stay in line.

Bannon to speak at Moore's election night rally

and

Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump's former chief strategist and a key booster of Roy Moore's insurgent candidacy, will speak at the Republican's election night rally, a Moore campaign official told NBC News. 

Bannon endorsed Moore during his GOP primary run against Sen. Luther Strange, who was appointed to fill the vacancy left when Jeff Sessions became attorney general. It pitted Bannon against Trump, who campaigned for Strange ahead of the September primary. 

Bannon continued to back Moore after media reports of Moore's sexual misconduct, framing the allegations as a conspiracy to defeat the conservative. At an election-eve rally Monday, Bannon said there is a "special place in hell" for Republicans who don't support Moore.

Exit poll: Alabama voters want GOP-controlled Senate, but view Moore unfavorably

Alabama voters have a slight preference for a Republican-controlled Senate, but they view the party's candidate in Tuesday's special election unfavorably, according to NBC News exit poll results.

Forty-nine percent say they would like to see the GOP control the Senate.  Slightly less — 44 percent — say they would like to see the Senate under Democratic control.

However, Moore is viewed unfavorably by most Alabama voters, with 55 percent saying they have an unfavorable view of him compared to just 48 percent who say they have an unfavorable view of Jones.

Polls close in Alabama with race too early to call

Polls are now closed in Alabama where the contentious Senate race between Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones is too early to call, according to the NBC News Decision Desk. 

Both campaigns expressed optimism throughout the day as the unexpectedly competitive race reached its conclusion.

Moore is holding his election night party in Montgomery, and Jones is in Birmingham.

Moore’s campaign bars Washington Post reporters from event

Roy Moore campaign refused to admit reporters from The Washington Post to an election night event, the paper said Tuesday night. 

“We were denied credentials and when our reporters asked to enter they were told no,” a spokesman told NBC News.

The Washington Post first reported the allegations that Roy Moore pursued teenage girls when he was in his 30s, and initiated a sexual encounter with a girl who was 14 at the time. The Republican candidate has said the allegations, which grew after the initial Washington Post story to include a total of nine women, are all false. 

Moore has threatened to sue the paper for its reporting.

2017 was the year of special elections. Here's why.

1819d ago / 12:31 AM UTC

Why do voters at some Montgomery County polling places see two ballots?

Voters at some polling places in Montgomery County have noticed that there are two ballots for two different elections — prompting questions. Usually just one ballot exists, even in places where multiple elections are occurring. 

Montgomery County, however, is different, Probate Judge Steven Reed, the top elections official for Montgomery County, told NBC News. 

While the highly-anticipated special U.S. Senate election Moore and Jones is a statewide race, there is also a special Alabama State Senate Democratic primary election for the state’s 26th Senate District occurring Tuesday night. 

"Alabama state law prohibits us from having a primary and a general election tabulated at the same time by the same machine on the same ballot," Reed said. 

The 26th State Senate District is composed entirely of 33 of the 49 precincts in Montgomery County. As a result, polling places for those 33 precincts are offering two ballots for two elections, Reed said, while polling places for the other 16 precincts are offering just one ballot for one election: The special U.S. Senate race.

Early exit poll: The Trump factor

Alabama voters so far today are split on how they feel about the way Donald Trump is handling his job as president. According to early NBC News Exit Polls, 48 percent approve, and the exact same share of voters —48 percent —disapprove.  

And despite Trump's endorsement of the embattled Republican candidate, nearly half of voters said Trump was not a factor in their vote today. About three in ten (29 percent) voters said that one of the reasons for their vote was to express support for Trump, and 20 percent indicated that they were expressing opposition to Trump with their vote.

GOP senators will meet tomorrow if Moore wins

and

If Roy Moore wins Tuesday, Senate Republicans will meet as a conference Wednesday morning to discuss next steps, multiple Republican Senate sources told NBC News.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and other GOP lawmakers have previously said that Moore would face an almost immediate ethics probe. Republican senators will also have to decide whether to include him in policy discussions as well as whether to seat him on any committees. 

The meeting, currently slated for 10 a.m., will likely focus on messaging: How the party handles the election of a senator facing multiple allegations of sexual misconduct involving teenage girls decades ago.

1819d ago / 11:52 PM UTC

Early exit poll: Majority of Alabama voters believe abortion should be illegal

Fifty-four percent of Alabama voters say abortion should be illegal, while 40 percent believe abortion should be legal, according to NBC News early exit poll results. 

Among Roy Moore voters, 38 percent believe that abortion should be illegal in most cases while 42 percent believe abortion should be illegal in all cases.

Among Doug Jones voters, 41 percent believe that abortion should be legal in most cases while a quarter (23 percent) believes abortion should be legal in all cases.

Moore believes homosexuality a 'destructive lifestyle,' campaign aide says

Roy Moore believes homosexuality is a “destructive lifestyle,” his campaign strategist said Tuesday, responding to a video of an Alabama voter criticizing Moore's rhetoric against gay people.

“Judge Moore is very clear. He believes marriage is between a man and a woman. It’s just that clear to Judge Moore,” campaign strategist Dean Young said on MSNBC.  

“He knows that it’s a destructive lifestyle...Judge Moore disagrees with that lifestyle,” Young added.

Celebs rally support for Jones

Democrat Doug Jones brought stars to Alabama to get out the vote Tuesday.

Actress and activist Alyssa Milano and "Covert Affairs" actress Piper Perabo drove students to the polls on Tuesday, while Alabama native Channing Tatum recorded a video appealing to student voters. 

“Look, usually I’m not a political person, for the record I’m not a liberal Democrat or a Republican, I’m my own mind and my own heart and that is more complex than red and blue,” he said, noting that he was supporting Jones. “No one thinks students are gonna go out and vote. So, prove them wrong.”

On Monday night, NBA star Charles Barkley — who was born in Alabama — appealed to voters at a rally for Jones.

1819d ago / 11:27 PM UTC

Early exit poll: Majority of Alabama voters decided before Moore's scandal

Most Alabama voters decided who they would vote for in today’s Senate race before November, according to early NBC News Exit Polls. Roy Moore was first accused of sexual misconduct on November 9, but notably, 60 percent of voters said they decided who they would vote for before the allegations surfaced.

1 in 10 voters said they decided on their candidate within the last few days and another 9 percent said they decided earlier in December. A fifth of voters said they decided in November.

Alabama Democrat says 'broken' state party created hurdle for Jones

Alabama’s "broken" Democratic Party was a major hurdle Doug Jones' campaign struggled to overcome, a Democratic state legislator said in an interview Tuesday.

“We have people who would rather vote for a pedophile than a Democrat,” Rep. Patricia Todd, the state’s only openly gay legislator, said on “Meet The Press Daily.”

“Our state party structure is broken, we really don't have an active party,” Todd added. “And that's been hard on this campaign.” Jones' field operation, which the state party would normally have an active role in organizing, fell entirely to Jones' campaign, Todd said.

Jones outspent Moore six-to-one on TV ads

If Roy Moore wins the Alabama Senate race, it won’t be because he flooded the TV airwaves with his message.

According to ad-tracking outfit Advertising Analytics LLC, as of last Friday, Democrat Doug Jones’ campaign had outspent Moore by nearly a six-to-one margin on the airwaves, $7.2 million to $1.2 million.

A total of $11.6 million had poured into the race during the general election as of late last week, with a big assist for Jones coming from Democratic super PAC Highway 31, which spent $2.3 million statewide on broadcast, cable and radio. 

1819d ago / 11:11 PM UTC

Early exit poll: Voters love their candidates

According to early exit polls, 65 percent of Alabama voters said they strongly favor their candidate for U.S. Senate today. One in five said they like their candidate, but with reservations, and 12 percent said their vote was motivated by dislike of the other candidate.

Jones voters overwhelmingly said they voted for him because they strongly favor him. Eleven percent of Jones voters said they like him with reservations, and 9 percent said they voted for him because they dislike the other candidate.

Moore voters were more split — 54 percent said they strongly favor him and 31 percent said they like him, but with reservations. Just over one in ten Moore voters said they were motivated to vote for him because they dislike the other candidate.

Moore strategist predicts easy win, and no Senate ethics probe

Roy Moore’s campaign strategist predicted a win for the Republican shortly after polls close and said that it is unlikely Moore will face a Senate ethics investigation if elected.

"I think by 7:45 [CT] we’ll have enough indicators that say we’re going to win. And the people of Alabama will have spoken," Moore campaign aide Dean Young said on MSNBC.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said Moore will face an immediate ethics investigation if he arrives in Washington. But Young said he believes the Senate Republicans are “blowing a lot of hot smoke."

"You saw everybody, they all ran away from Judge Moore. They all started coming back slowly but surely, saying, 'Hey, let the people of Alabama decide,'" Young said.

Early exit poll: Republicans, white evangelicals think accusations against Moore are false

While 49 percent of Alabama Senate voters overall said they think the sexual misconduct allegations against Moore are definitely or probably true, Republican and Democratic voters in Alabama view the accusations differently, early exit poll results show. 

Voters who identify as belonging to the Democratic party overwhelmingly say they think the allegations are true. A majority of Republicans, however, think the allegations are false, with 54 percent saying they are “probably” false, and an additional 28 percent saying “definitely” false.

White evangelicals — a key voting bloc for Republican candidates in Alabama — overwhelmingly think the allegations are false.

DHS official: No signs of hacking or interference

Department of Homeland Security personnel are working "side-by-side" with state election officials in Montgomery, Alabama to ensure protection of the voting process, the department told reporters Tuesday. 

Christopher Krebs, a Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Under Secretary for the National Protection and Programs Directorate, said that while states are ultimately responsible for securing their elections, DHS provides services such as "cyber hygiene scans" on a voluntary basis to ensure there is no effort to hack into voter databases or manipulate votes.

Krebs said his division has been in contact with Alabama state election officials in the weeks leading up to the election and so far they have no indications of successful efforts to interfere.

Alabama was one of 21 states targeted by hackers in the 2016 election.

What to watch for tonight when polls close

Thanks for joining us tonight.

NBC News' Jonathan Allen, reporting from Alabama, broke down which counties he’ll be watching as tonight’s returns come in after polls close at 7 p.m. local time (8 p.m. ET).

First up: We'll be keeping a close eye on Talladega County: It's Alabama’s bellwether.

If Moore wins here, even by a small yet comfortable margin, that would suggest that Republicans across the state haven't abandoned him enough to cost him the election. On the other hand, if Jones is running even with Moore or ahead of him in Talladega, that would likely indicate a good night for the Democrats.
