The chairman of Democrat Doug Jones' Alabama Senate campaign said he is seeing high voter turnout in two counties, which according to one pre-election poll could signal Jones is on his way to victory.

Giles Perkins highlighted higher-than-expected turnout in Jefferson and Montgomery Counties during an interview with The Washington Post.

Both of those counties have strong Democratic bases.

The Monmouth University Poll published the results of a survey Monday that suggested a higher overall turnout like what Alabama saw in the 2016 presidential election could tip the scales in Jones' favor, predicting a three-point victory for him over Republican Roy Moore — who has been accused by several women of sexual misconduct dating back 40 years.

The Monmouth survey did, however, find that a higher turnout in Democratic strongholds could shift the balance over to Moore's campaign.

Polls in the contentious Alabama special election close at 7 p.m. local time Tuesday.
