According to unofficial election results, Moore lost the race to Jones by 1.5 percentage points.
His complaint alleges that out-of-state residents had been allowed to vote and that election fraud experts had concluded through statistical analyses that fraud had taken place.
With Jones' upset victory in Alabama confirmed, the Republican party of President Donald Trump now holds 51 seats in the Senate and the Democrats have 49 - the slimmest of majorities.
A day after the election, Merrill said it was "highly unlikely" that Jones, 63, would not be certified as the victor.
Mr Moore's lawyer said the goal of the complaint was to "preserve evidence of potential election fraud and to postpone the certification of Alabama's Special Election by Secretary of State John Merrill until a thorough investigation of potential election fraud, that improperly altered the outcome of this election".
Moore, a far-right Republican dogged by accusations of sexual misconduct with teens in the race to fill the Senate seat of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, lost the December 12 election to Jones but refused to concede.

Montgomery Circuit Judge Johnny Hardwick on Thursday denied a last-ditch legal bid by Mr Moore for a restraining order to stop Alabama's canvassing board from certifying Mr Jones' victory.
(Washington Examiner) - Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore says he passed a polygraph test proving the "representations of misconduct" made against him during his unsuccessful campaign are false.
Moore declined to concede defeat even after Trump urged him to do so. The win came after Moore, best known for stands against gay marriage and the public display of the Ten Commandments, was dogged by accusations of sexual misconduct involving teenage girls that occurred decades ago.
He will fill the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions when Sessions became USA attorney general in the Donald Trump administration early this year. He attached a statement from a poll worker that she had noticed licenses from Georgia and North Carolina as people signed in to vote.
Merrill said he has so far not found any evidence of voter fraud, but he has said that his office will investigate any complaint Moore submits. The complaint also noted the higher-than-expected turnout in the race, particularly in Jefferson County.
Moore has denied wrongdoing and Reuters has not been able to independently verify the allegations.
