Alaska Supreme Court Issues Revised Order, Now Says Regulation Against Showing List of Write-in Candidates to Voters is Unlawful

Published on October 30, 2010, by in General.

On October 29, the Alaska Supreme Court issued a revised order in State of Alaska v Alaska Democratic Party and Alaska Republican Party, S-14054.  This is the case over whether elections officials are permitted to show the list of declared write-in candidates to voters at the polls.  The new 7-page order says that the regulation against showing that list to voters is unlawful, because state election law 15.15.240 says that voters who ask for assistance may receive it.  Laws, of course, trump regulations.

The October 29 order also alters the earlier (October 27) order, by canceling the earlier directive to segregate the ballots of voters who had asked to see the list of write-in candidates.  Thanks to ElectionLawBlog for the link.

A Dittman Research and Communications Poll released October 29 shows:  Lisa Murkowski (write-in) 37%; Joe Miller (Republican) 27%; Scott McAdams (Democrat) 23%; other and undecided 13%.

    Very reassuring that the Supreme Court of Alaska is the personal legal panel for the Murkowski campaign. Some judicial impeachments are in order…
