Alaska: Mat-Su Assembly votes 6-1 to outlaw voting machines

AlaskaWatchman.com

Dominion voting machines have been banned from all Mat-Su Borough elections, starting next year.

In a 6-1 vote on Oct. 4, the Mat-Su Borough Assembly eliminated any and all voting machines from local elections, and mandated that all tabulation happen via transparent hand counting.

The only Assembly member to vote against the ban was Stephanie Nowers.

In the months and weeks leading up to the vote, hundreds of concerned citizens testified against the use of voting machines. The new tabulation policy will go into effect as of Jan. 1, 2023.

Before the vote, Nowers and Assemblyman Tim Hale attempted to delay the measure until February 2023. That motion failed, and Hale eventually voted in favor of the voting machine ban.

The upcoming Nov. 8 election will include machine counting, but that will be the last time. The delay is due to the fact that borough elections are only a month away and there was concern that there wouldn’t be enough time to implement the new policy. more here

  2. That 100,000 is a bit deceiving, once you are out of the Palmer/Wasilla area you can be in the wild pretty quickly.
