It's happening: a recount of the Alaska Senate race.
Alaskans For Fair Elections is now seeking technical consultations with people familiar with
the AccuVote ballot and Diebold software. Contact: David Koester, email@example.com, or Ed Davis, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Recount Alaska effort is citing exit poll discrepancies that predicted Tony Knowles would beat Lisa Murkowski -- he lost -- and speculation of Diebold craziness.
One thing that makes me skeptical of any problems in the state is that Alaska is always a firmly Republican state in Presidential races; I easily buy the idea that all the people coming in to vote for Bush brought Murkowski in on the coattails. Especially given that voters in Alaska were seeing Bush ads -- run on national cable -- and weren't seeing Kerry ads -- which were placed only on local television in swing states.
But, another recount funded!
