Elections office: Audit affirms AK initiative passage
December 17, 2020
JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — An audit of a statewide ballot measure sought by Lt. Gov. Kevin Meyer affirmed the measure’s passage, the Division of Elections said Monday.
Meyer, who oversees elections, last month said he would seek an audit of Ballot Measure 2 to help put to rest questions some had raised about the “validity” of election results tied to vote tabulation equipment the state uses.
The ballot measure would end party primaries and institute ranked choice voting for general elections. The audit, conducted last week, followed certification of the Nov. 3 election the prior week.
