— Some Doug Jones and Roy Moore supporters in Mobile spent their election eve trying to sway voters. They certainly showed they are passionate about their candidate, and when the polls open at 7 a.m., they're hoping all the hard work pays off.

You've probably noticed; Jones and Moore have been filling the airwaves in the last several weeks. It's been non-stop. And on top of the overload of commercials, you've also probably seen a sign or two around town. Moore supporters were waving theirs on Airport Boulevard, and like their candidate, they got a lot of attention.

"We haven't had a voice for so long, and I believe that when he gets up there, he will be that voice," said Kay Day.

"We need judge Moore desperately in this state, we need him. He's a good christian man and he's pro-American, loves this country," said another Moore supporter, Joe Green.

Also making a lot of noise at a rally Monday night: "Women for Doug Jones." That included several local democratic leaders, headed up by State Senator Vivian Figures. Her message was getting people out to vote.

"I like the fact that he's interested in everybody being represented and he's going there to represent everyone," said Dru Scott, who was at the rally.

"We need change in Alabama, and I feel so hard that he's the man to do it, not Mr. Moore," agreed Randall Brown.

With election eve over, it's crunch time for the candidates and their supporters. Come this Tuesday, voting will be over, this very heated election, will be too. Supporters on both sides are hoping all of the attention surrounding this election will get people out to vote.
