MARION COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - Many Doug Jones campaign signs still sit on lawns across Marion County.
People like Resident Mark Sanderson said regardless of the accusations against Roy Moore, they were going to vote for Doug Jones regardless.
"I think a lot of that is called politics as usual," Sanderson said.
Some residents said they were disappointed with the outcome of the senate race but are looking forward to what will happen next.
Even with this election grabbing national attention, some people said they didn't care who won.
But millinials like Hunter Palmer who closely watched the poll numbers and voted are ready for change.
"I think Doug Jones with his more progressive views and everything -- I think it's a step in the right direction for Alabama," he said.
It's been years since Alabama had a democrat in the senate seat so this comes as a first for some in Marion County.
"Alabama is known as being one of the behind the time states so I think this is the step in the right direction to get Alabama's name out there," Palmer said.
