Alaska election will not be signature-verified

Gateway PunditAlaska’s Division of Elections will not verify the authenticity of voter signatures on the ballots cast in the upcoming June 11 special statewide primary to replace Rep. Don Young.Multiple bills have been introduced in the current legislative session to address voter integrity issues, including voter signature verification, but they have languished in various House and Senate committee assignments. Lt. Gov. Kevin Meyer submitted legislation to the current Legislature to address this issue, but his Senate Bill 167 has languished in the Senate State Affairs Committee since Jan. 18th with no movement. Several other bills dealing with voter signature verification have been introduced, including House Bill 96 by Gov. Mike Dunleavy. That bill has stalled in the House State Affairs Committee.

One of the first events in my own memory that caused me to question the integrity of our electoral process was when Republican senator Lisa Murkowski won a write-in campaign for Senator after losing her primary. Winning a statewide campaign as a write-in candidate is unheard of and can only be driven by corruption.

It appears Sarah Palin will be running in this special election. Is she a genuine candidate for the people or an establishment fakeout? I don't know. As a way to shore up McCain (whose hate-hate relationship with his own party's base was well established) Palin got a lot of good attention. But her actual record is thin and not always positive. I'm cautiously optimistic, though. And not being Alaskan my opinion matters little.

But even more interesting will be watching the election itself, and trying to figure out if it's honest or fraudulent.
