Election officials on Wednesday will count provisional ballots in a closely watched state senate race.
Longtime Sen. Roger Bedford of Russellville trails Republican Larry Stutts by just 60 votes, according to unofficial returns.
Voters can cast provisional ballots if they do not have the required photo identification or if they do not appear on a polling place's list of voters. The votes only count if election officials determine the person was rightfully eligible to vote.
Bedford's supporters say they will hold out hope until the last vote is counted.
