Kevin Meyer mug

A new citizen-led petition asks Lt. Gov. Kevin Meyer to conduct a detailed forensic audit of Alaska’s 2020 general election. It was launched earlier this week by Mat-Su resident Dave Maxwell who has worked closely with state and elected officials for more than a year to address election problems.

The online petition raises concern about hackers who stole Alaskans’ personal information twice over the past year. The first instance occurred just weeks before the Nov. 3, 2020 election when hackers broke into the Alaska Division of Elections voter registration system – accessing the personal data of 113,000 voters, including the very information needed to request absentee ballots in someone else’s name. This included names, birth dates, last four digits of Social Security Numbers, driver’s licenses, state issued identification numbers, residences, mailing addresses, registered political affiliations and email addresses.

Without a forensic audit, the petition warns that voters will simply lose faith in elections.

Additionally, this past spring a sophisticated cyber attack exposed even more personal information of an unknown number of Alaskans when hackers breached the state’s Department of Health website. This data included names, birth dates, Social Security numbers, addresses, telephone numbers, driver’s license numbers, health information, financial data and more.

“Stolen identities, which happened twice in Alaska in the last year through the Division of Elections and the division of Health and Human Services will predictably result in stolen elections,” the petition states.

Additionally, the petition observes that Meyers was repeatedly warned to not purchase Dominion voting machines – advice he ultimately ignored. It also claims that the recently approved rank-choice voting system was “forced upon us by a fraudulent 2020 election” in which the Alaska Supreme Court barred the state from following Alaska statute requiring signature verification for mail-in ballots.

While the lieutenant governor has authority to oversee elections, the petition claims that Gov. Mike Dunleavy is “against this petition because he’s hoping to take advantage of rank choice voting to get re-elected.”

Without a forensic audit, the petition warns that voters will simply lose faith in elections. It points to low voter turnout in recent city elections for Palmer and Wasilla as a sign that “voters distrust our systems of government.”

The goal of the petition is to amass more than 25,000 signatures to present to both Dunleavy and Meyer.

    Oh it is on now!
    These audits are starting to happen nationwide now.
    Soon, we shall see the corruption that has infected our vote

    • monkfelonious says:

      The only infection is somewhere in your brain.

      • Lobo says:

        Says the “Felonious Monkey”.. You’re swinging out of your tree nest.

      • Arctic Blast says:

        You clearly have no idea about what happened in the State & Federal election held in November 2020. I do and I have direct experience of how it was ignored by Kevin Meyer, even when given overwhelming evidence of likely fraud and how it was done.

      • Evan+S+Singh says:

        Please share the evidence!

  • Ekim+Kcidrub says:

    It’s about time. When I voted in Person I inserted my ballot into the voting machine and it spit it out and the lady said it had been happening most all day like that. She pressed something on the side or back and in it went.
    I thought that something was fishy at the time then didn’t think about it anymore.

  • monkfelonious says:

    Great another monkey see monkey do trumpanzy black hole. You get an absentee ballot with a friggin BAR CODE on it. Yeah, really easy to generate a fake one. Alaskganistan, not the place I moved to half a century ago.

    • Neil+A+DeWitt says:

      So big mouth how many of those bar coded ballots did you get? I got 3 and a friend got 6 the first time we did mail in ballots. The worker when I questioned it told me to fill them all out and deposit them. I said it’s illegal to vote more than once!

  • Lobo says:

    Says the “monkey” playing with his tail.. Where did you move to, and discovered yourself in a Black Hole ? Sounds like a Commiefornia migrant for certain .. The disease that infected Anchorfornia.

  • G Aleution says:

    Consider it done. Already.

  • Steve says:

    I would like to have the “Ranked Choice Voting” initiative audited!

    • Arctic Blast says:

      Wouldn’t we all… I truly hope there is a Tsunami of support for this so that Kevin Meyer CANNOT ignore and sweep it under the carpet.

  • G Aleution says:

    I’m thinking positively that perhaps our military has become quite aware of enormous scathing details declaring the wonders of election misnomers. One can cling to “the xelusive phantom of hope” as I do.

  • Eric says:

    I would like to see how many PFD distribution check errors happen due to the registration hack. I believe that in itself would fuel a full forensic audit.

  • Nial Sherwood Williams says:

    This was sent to all Senators and Representatives, Lt. Governor Meyer & Governor Dunleavy on November 22, 2020

    “ Dear SIr/Madame

    It has come to our attention that you are illegally attempting to certify the election. There are a number of factors that show this election to be an abject fraud.

    1). The Division of Elections website shows 595,647 ballots being cast. The 2010 U.S. census shows 710,231 people in Alaska, this also includes illegals, persons on Visas, and felons. Voting age is 18 and standard life expectancy is 78. This being said the group of eligible voters would be 450,000. Alaska has one of the lowest voter registration rates and an even lower voter turnout, typically 10-15%. This would give a likely number of ballots cast as under 45,000 people. Even with all the additional voter registration efforts, it is impossible for all 595,647 ballots cast to come from legitimate citizens, who are of age, not with felony records, and who are not illegal aliens or persons on Visas.

    2). Your decision to allow for early voting that started over 14 days before the date of the real election casts extreme doubt on the entire process. There would have been no way to prevent someone from having cast more than one ballot: early voting, absentee, and date of election voting would have each been separably possible. That would give each citizen 3 chances to vote at a minimum.

    3). Your lackadaisical identification requirements both at the point of registration and at the voting booth are rife with fraud. Your allowable forms of ID are less restrictive than flying, buying cigarettes, purchasing alcohol, etc. If one had a gym membership card with an expiration date it would be sufficient. Even on the absentee ballot you did not require a signature of a witness. This change was made unilaterally and illegally by the Lieutenant Governor. This violates the Alaska State and US Constitutions.

    4). Ballot Measures 1 & 2. Both have significant effects that will be felt on all Alaskans for years to come. Neither of these ballot measures was adequately represented on the ballot for purposes of transparency. Both propositions were represented on the ballot as being just a few paragraphs long. Ballot measure 1 was over 7 pages. Ballot Measure 2 was 22 pages. Both Ballot measures were not even finalized until a mere 3 weeks before the election. Giving those that participated in early or absentee voting improper time to be able to reflect on the magnitude of the decision they were making. Especially Ballot measure 2 changes the entire function of Alaska elections forever. At best the actions of the Division of Elections were nefarious, at worst they were maleficence and criminal in nature.

    You are hereby ordered and placed on notice to NOT certify this illegal election. Every vote must be audited by a legal team of both democrats and republicans to avoid certifying an illegal election.

    Certifying an election which is known to be a fraud is treason against the State of Alaska and the United States of America. There is nothing more sacred to the upholding of our Constitutional Republic than voting. Voting requires fair and honest elections. These elections being rife with fraud does not provide for a truthful representation of the citizens desires. This trampling of the Constitutions carries very specific penalties as outlined in our Constitution.

    A Special Session of the Legislature is the last vestige of hope to save our Constitutional Republic. The question is, will any of our elected officials answer the call?

    Very Truly Yours,

    Nial Sherwood Williams”

    Only Representative Sarah Vance & Representative Andy Josephson replied. Mr Josephson defended the election as lawful. Miss Vance applauded the spirit of the email. As you all know the criminals that stole the vote are still fugitives evading justice.

    Audit now.

    • Arctic Blast says:

      Great Comments Nial !…. I sent some similar e-mails to Kevin Meyer after the election and was brushed off….


    I’m glad you could find 90 people who watch enough OAN propaganda to think Alaska’s elections were rigged. Good luck finding 25k, lmao

    • Arctic Blast says:

      You clearly are not very good with math are you ? How did more vote on prop 2 combined than voted for Biden & Trump combined ?

  • Jen says:

    Lt. Governor Meyer got the covid jabs didn’t he? Just as everyone else the shots are terribly aging all who recieved who are considered fully covid vaccinated. Its been aging and thinning all recipients.

    • Jen says:

      You can now start telling the difference between who recieved the covid shots and those still without it by one comparing one anothers bone and muscle masses and skin complexions. The ones today living with covid shots are looking dramatically older, frail, and pale. While those without look their age and still maintaining their color and fuller muscle and bone.
      Those covid shots are appearing to be bad. Worse than the Flu shots and Fluoride in the water we been consuming.

  • NAV says:

    This is like holding on to a rattlesnake and expecting it not to strike L.O.L. this is the very guy who ordered the Dominion voting machines!!!

  • Larry H Miller says:

    The Lt Gov is the one who ignored advice and went ahead and ordered Dominion Machines. It is his duty at this point to order a forensic audit to ensure the validity of results.

  • Buzz Kelley says:

    It is interesting to note that the Alaska Supreme Court barred the state from following Alaska statute requiring signature verification of mail-in ballots. I am guessing because covid just made it too gosh darn dangerous to find a witness?
    But it was OK to stop at a convenience store (massive traffic) and buy gas and beer? Go to Home Depot? Pizza place?
    Apparently all those brilliant Alaska supreme court justices with all those law and business degrees do not mind moving themselves into the “useful idiots” category. Too bad. Right when we need people who actually have some common sense we get stuck with these sorry woke excuses for justices.

  • David says:

    Please continue to push this petition and encourage others to sign it. Arizona is very close to their reveal and Wisconsin won’t be far behind.
    A note to you Mr Myer: fraud cover up in elections is a felony ;so if you are participating in deceit, it’s time to come clean because the people aren’t going away just because you close your eyes and hope they will

  • David says:

    Let’s move this petition forward.
