A judge in Alabama is ordering election officials to preserve all digital ballot images in Tuesday's nail-biting U.S. Senate special election between beleaguered Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones, according to a report in AL.com.

Montgomery County Circuit Judge Roman Ashley Shaul granted a preliminary injunction Monday afternoon in response to a lawsuit filed last week by four Alabama voters who argued the state must save the records under state and federal law.

"All counties employing digital ballot scanners in the Dec. 12, 2017 election are hereby ordered to set their voting machines to save all processed images in order to preserve all digital ballot images," Shaul wrote.

Moore, whose campaign was rocked in early November by allegations of sexual misconduct, is regaining support from his party with President Donald Trump even backing him. He has widened his lead over Jones in the days ahead of the election, leading by as much as 5 points in the most recent Gravis and Trafalgar surveys.

Before the allegations, Moore had enjoyed a lead of as much as 22 points.
