No, Alaska does not deliver its ballots by dog sled

Most Must Read Alaska readers don’t follow MSNBC on a regular basis, but we do, so you don’t have to.

On Meet the Press, Jessica Taylor of Cook Political Report commented that the race for U.S. Senate in Alaska is one to watch:

“This is a race that we, I think, don’t know on election night because literally they have to bring in some of the ballots by dog sled.”

Uh, no. Not really. These are the experts?

“Popping in here…we do not bring in ballots by dog sled. Confirmed this with our Region IV supervisor and also with the division’s Director of Dog Relations, Gary Bark Jr,.” quipped the Division of Elections on Twitter, where the Division runs what is arguably the most entertaining Twitter feed in Alaska.

Most prognosticators believe U.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan is ahead, even though Alan Gross has spent $25 million to unseat him. Like any other race, it matters that conservative voters show up and not take it for granted.

Cook Political Report has rated this race “Lean Republican.”

  1. Proving yet again that intelligence and common sense aren’t necessary to be a TV/political personality or commentator.

  2. I’m mushing my dogs to the polls on election day. So yeah, sorta ballots by dogsled. Six ballots from our family.
    Dan Sullivan to win.
