BAN reports that the California Secretary of State has not determined who the current officers of the American Independent Party of California are? The American Independent Party is the third largest party in California by voter registration, which is 731,426 as of 1/4/22. Until recently, the CA SOS listed Markham Robinson as Chairman, he has been deceased since 2021. Apparently, former CA AIP board member, Mark Seidenberg has relocated to Anchorage, Alaska. In a curious twist, former AIP activist and current California resident, Robert Ornelas has filed for the Alaska Special Congressional Election under the American Independent Party label. There is currently no American Independent Party organized in Alaska.

The upcoming Special Election Open Top Four Primary in Alaska for the single At-Large Congressional seat long held by Don Young will occur June 11. His death has opened the flood gates of pent up political pressure, as over 48 candidates from all across the political spectrum have filed. Filing deadline was Friday, April 1 at 5:00pm Alaska Time. This promises to be a a memorable and historic election, as candidates only have about 8 weeks until ballots are mailed out to voters. This will be an all mail-in ballot election. Additionally, the General Special Election Date will fall on the same day as the regular Primary election. This means, that there will be two similar crowded ballots for the same office on the same day. One is to fill the remainder of Don Young's term through January 3, 2023, the other for the next regular two year term.
