Now that Judge Roy Moore will officially not be Alabama's next senator, all the write-in votes for the state's controversial special Senate election to fill now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions' vacant seat are even more hilarious.
The write-in appendix is now available for #ALSen and it has some big names https://t.co/mYItJyucem https://t.co/FYJivbZC77— Decision Desk HQ (@Decision Desk HQ) 1514499698.0
Here's six of the best write-ins below.
1. Mickey Mouse
A total of six Alabamans dissatisfied with the two major party candidates and Libertarian Ron Bishop cast ballots for the world-famous mouse. Given his steadfast leadership of Disney theme parks around the world, it's not hard to see why voters would prefer him to Moore.

Dyed-in-the-wool Republicans faced a difficult dilemma in the special Senate election — vote for a GOP pedophile, or vote for a Democrat. At least two took the apparent high road by voting for "Decent Republican Candidate" and "A Normal Republican, Please."
6. Not Listed Due to Graphic Language
everyone vote for “not listed due to graphic language” 2018!!!— star ✰ ⋆。° ∘ ♡ (@star ✰ ⋆。° ∘ ♡) 1514505795.0
Three voters wrote in apparent expletives that the state categorized as "Not Listed Due to Graphic Language." We feel you there, Alabama.
