Dems, Republicans Sue over Write-in Lists

Monday, 25 Oct 2010 10:55 PM

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Alaska Democrats and Republicans finally agree on something: The state Division of Elections should not be providing voters with a list of write-in candidates at polling places.

The Alaska Democratic Party and the Republican Party of Alaska sued the Division of Elections on Monday, seeking a restraining order to immediately halt election workers from providing lists of write-in candidates to anyone who asks.

The matter is crucial this year as incumbent U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who was defeated by Joe Miller in the August GOP primary, mounts a write-in campaign.

Attorney Thomas Daniel says state regulations are clear that information regarding a write-in candidate may not be "discussed, exhibited or provided" at the polling place.

A hearing in the matter is set for later Monday.
