Late-night count: 21K more ballots finished, District 25 flips to Democrat Schrage


Another 21,000 ballots were counted and posted on the Division of Elections website after 11:30 pm on Tuesday.

263,645 ballots have been counted. While Ballot Measure 2 lost some more ground, Rep. Mel Gillis in District 25 saw his lead disappear to Indie-Democrat Calvin Schrage.

Here’s where some of the races stand as of midnight, Nov. 10:

Ballot Measure 1 is losing 60.70% to 39.30%. Earlier in the night it was 61.58% to 38.42%. This is the measure that would increase taxes on oil. The proponents would need to get 75 of the remaining vote to win, and 25 percent of the remaining vote is Republican.

Ballot Measure 2 is losing with 47.51% for and 52.49% against. Earlier in the night, it was 46.69-53.31%. In other words, the “no” side is slipping.

This is the measure that would scramble Alaska elections into a ranked-choice system and jungle primary.

All results here.

Biden / Harris had 64,246 on election night, now at 102,080 votes, 38.91%

Trump / Pence had 118,844 on election night, now at 148,624 votes, 56.65%

Of note, in 2016, Hillary Clinton received 36.55% of the vote, and Donald Trump received 51.28% in the final count of the 318,608 votes counted. In 2020, Trump is doing even better in Alaska than he did four years ago.

Al Gross had 61,364 on election night, now at 97,608, 37.45%.

Sen. Dan Sullivan had 119,174 on election night, now at 149,669, 57.42%.

Of note, this is Sen. Sullivan’s first run for reelection. In 2014, he won against one-term incumbent Democrat Sen. Mark Begich, 48-46%.

Alyse Galvin had 69,674 on election night, now at 108,269, 41.71%.

Congressman Don Young had 119,999 on election night, now at 150,443, 57.95%.

Of note, in 2016, Steve Lindbeck received 36.02% of the vote and Congressman Don Young received 50.32% of the vote of the 308,198 votes counted. In 2018, Young won 53.08% to Alyse Galvin’s 46.50%.

Tonight Galvin needs more than 73 percent of the remaining ballots to win against the Dean of the House.

  • District 6? Mike Cronk still holding his lead?

  • I hope people are waking up to the fact that the deep state is a lot closer to home than they may have been led to believe. If you doubt me, you’re welcome to keep living in your faux news fantasy world until it’s too late.

  • I count 22, I am not counting Stutes since I fully expect she will caucus with the socialists.

  • We have little doubt that the Great Alaska LeDoux Vote Experiment continues
    … and even less assurance that it can’t.
