Unless forced by a court, the Anchorage Assembly will not look into claims that the April 4 citywide election was marred by fraud, corruption or malconduct.

In a 9-3 vote on May 23, the left-leaning Assembly rejected an election challenged that was submitted last month by 10 concerned voters who say 36,000 voters were disenfranchised by either corruption or ineptitude on the part of the city’s election team.

Assemblymen Scott Myers, Kevin Cross and Randy Sulte were the only members to vote in favor of investigating the election challenge.

Those who filed the challenge point out that 15% of voters (36,143 people) were disenfranchised when the city failed to mail them an election announcement postcard or ballot package. They want to know who made this decision, why, and whether outside contractors played any role. Challengers also want to know why the city’s election team failed to mail ballots to nearly 1,200 voters who successfully voted in the State of Alaska’s Nov. 8, 2022, general election.

With the Assembly’s 9-3 vote, they flatly refused to look into any of these concerns.

In order for challengers to get to the bottom of these questions, they will need to get a court order from a judge to force the Assembly’s hand.

    The left are just pure evil.

  • John K Powers says:

    So how can the public help them to get a court order?

  • Bob says:

    Just another problem with mail in ballots. We must vote in person to maintain election integrity.

    • Proud Alaskan says:

      Mail-in voting and rank choice voting is all about cheating.
      One vote in person with ID Yes with a real ID

  • Sharon says:

    What is the harm in investigating unless they are guilty? Nothing to hide? Nothing to worry about!

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    We need some people that can follow Kari Lake’s example and keep pushing this to get the election fraud exposed!

  • Andy says:

    well, to be expected from a group who wants men in woman’s sports, drag queen story time, untested vaccines in every arm, masks for everyone, businesses shut down, pornography in libraries, I mean c’mon! soon they’ll place homeless centers all over the city and be chartering plane loads of illegals in from the southern border!

  • Andy says:

    I can sense the urgency of Eaglexit, godspeed Eagle River!

  • Elizabeth Henry says:

    There is no motivation for them to do anything. They have the election process right where they want it to suit their desires. Full of holes with options for any ‘needed modification’. Nothing will change unless the citizens of Anchorage work together to push the needed changes.

  • Sensible Citizen says:

    The left never wants an honest election process. Cheating is a way of life for them. For them, it’s a generational issue. It’s been going on since I can remember and I’m no spring chicken!

  • Nunya says:

    Look around folks, these parasites won’t give up the power they’ve stolen. Are you suprised?

  • HomeschoolersToldYou says:

    set up a gofumdme for legal fees and I will contribute

  • HomeschoolersToldYou says:

    As long as they can get away with it they will. These narcissistic tyrants are blatantly hypocritical and consistency break the State and National Constitution with a corrupt judiciary to back them. That means they are not really the elected officials… what will you do about Anchorage?

  • Nav says:

    Rigged voting and corruption are what Alaska is filled with from the capitol to the north slope!!!
