Release Election Records
By Hunter Davis


April 19, 2006

I am fully behind anyone who questions post election questions of propriety and accounting.

The request of the Division of Elections appears to have no intention of changing any results. All it appears to be is a question of numbers. Either the district votes are wrong or the state is.

I can see no "security" problems here, just bureaucrats attempting to prevent their employers, the people of Alaska, from accounting for a seeming discrepency.

Release the reports. Let's get this cleared up. If it is accounting, fix it. If it is incompetence, fire several someones.

I like the system here in Ketchikan. Optical scanners leave a paper trail that can be manually recounted.

Again, release the reports, fix it and drive on.
