Alaska Elections Office Agrees to List Party Affiliations for Nominees of Unqualified Parties

Ballot Access News

On September 25, the Alaska Division of Elections changed its mind, and will print the party affiliations on the ballot for nominees of unqualified parties. The affected candidates are all Libertarians running for state legislative seats. See this story. One of the Libertarian nominees, Scott Kohlhaas, had filed a lawsuit on September 25, Kohlhaas v State, 3AN-20-08141.

The state’s change of mind means that some ballots will be reprinted, although the number of such ballots is small.
