In Alaska absentee ballots are counted a week after the election for a reason — they come in from all all over the state which is very large and not all absentee ballots are able to make it in before election day. Any ballot postmarked NLT the day of the election will be counted according to the Election Officials.
Doesn’t anyone bother to read election rules including the Miller campaign?
Don’t have a candidate in this race but getting sick and tired of the reference to stealing an election if absentee ballots go the other way. This is Alaska and a Republican primary. Guess the Dems should have sued in OK the other year when that happened and the Republican won.
Not every election is illegal and when you have over 16,000 absentee ballots or more to be counted it could go either way. This planting the seed of a rigged election is wrong. Both campaigns need to sit down and shut up until the FINAL results are posted. Note the word FINAL — the results are not FINAL unless ALL ballots are counted including absentee.
Remember the days when we were mad because military absentee ballots were thrown out in FL and other places. Now some people want to claim victory without the absentee ballots.
