Miller Wins Reprieve…Federal Judge Halts Senate Certification
(Christian Science Monitor)
To clarify, U.S. District Judge Ralph Beistline said that if Miller files a lawsuit in state court on or before Monday, the results should not be certified until the legal issues have been resolved, AP says.Miller conteneds that Alaska law requires voters to correctly spell the name of write-in candidates. State election officials have allowed ballots with minor misspellings of “Murkowski.”
Miller wants the law adhered to strictly and asked Beistline to keep the state from certifying the election results based on a count of ballots that aren’t in line with it.
The target date for certifying the race is Nov. 29.
