Electronic voting scandal? Alaska goes bigtime.

Way back on December 20th we read in the Anchorage Daily News that there were unexplained discrepencies in the electronic vote tallies here in the Great Land.

"For instance, when district-by-district vote counts are totaled, President Bush received 292,267 votes, according to an analysis by the Democrats. But his official total was 190,889, a difference of more than 100,000 votes, according to the state Web site," wrote Lisa Demer.

In a Fairbanks Senate race, Democrat Rita Allee earned 5,366 votes, according to the district-by-district report, but just 4,854 in the summary report, Brown said. In addition, more than 200 percent of the registered voters in some districts cast ballots, which should be impossible.

On December 19th, the Democratic Party on Monday filed a request with the state Division of Elections for the electronic data file of voting results, the record of who voted in the 2004 general election, and paper results from machines used in early voting.

Still waiting for an answer.

“… and tell ’em Big Mitch sent ya!”
