Friday, October 20, 2017, Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill (R) announced that he was handing over the names of 674 voters who broke the state’s new law banning crossover voting to prosecutors.
Under the new law, it is a felony to vote in the runoff of the party other than the one that you voted for in the primary. According to the Secretary of State’s office, 674 people voted in the August 15 Democratic Party primary for U.S. Senate and then voted in the September 26 Republican Party primary runoff.
