Roy Moore still won't concede in Alabama's special election.

Moore posted on his Facebook page late Wednesday that he filed a complaint in the Circuit Court of Montgomery, Alabama. He wants officials to postpone certifying the election because he says there's reason to believe election fraud occurred.

Moore lost the race to Democrat Doug Jones by a margin of 1.5 percent — just under 21,000 votes. That margin is too wide for an automatic recount. 

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill and other officials are expected to certify results Thursday. Merrill has previously said the outcome of this election is "highly unlikely" to change.

State officials have also said they've found no evidence of voter fraud in the U.S. Senate race in Alabama.
