Seth Keshel, who travels the country giving presentations on election integrity, did a deep dive and found several flaws in Alaska’s election systems. On Saturday at a meeting in Palmer, Keshel detailed a few of the problems that have developed in Alaska over the past few years that indicate the state is being taken over by Democrat election manipulation:
The first is the Permanent Fund Dividend automatic registration. In 2016, voters approved Ballot Measure 1, which allows the Division of Elections to automatically register to vote every person over the age of 18 who applies for a Permanent Fund dividend. There are far more people registered to vote in Alaska than are eligible because it’s easier to register people than it is to legally remove them from the voter lists.
Ranked Choice Voting is the second problem. In 2020, voters approved the use of ranked choice voting, which will be first used during the special election to find someone to fill out the remaining term of Congressman Don Young. The RCV voting method favors incumbents in Democrat strongholds, Keshel said, allowing extremists who market themselves as moderates to win.
Experiments in mail-in voting are the third danger for Alaska. In 2020, ballot applications were mailed to every Alaskan over the age of 65. Now, mail-in voting will be the method for the U.S. House special election now underway. There is no signature verification or witness verification process in place with this election, making it ripe for fraud.
Must Read Alaska has heard from several people who live out of state and are not residents of Alaska any longer, have not applied for dividends, and are now voting residents in other states, yet they are still getting ballots from the Division of Elections for this election.
The experiment in mail-in voting with its ballot harvesting hazards will open the door to groups like Alaskans for Better Elections, which brought ranked choice voting to the state, to push for all-mail-in elections.
Keshel recommends that mail-in voting be eliminated except for certain circumstances, that Alaska cleans up its voter lists and ends automatic PFD registration, and that electronic voting be replaced with paper ballots.
