Empire editorial

Posted: Monday, August 26, 2002

The last four sentences of Sunday's Empire editorial inadvertently were omitted. In context, the conclusion of the editorial should have read:

Alaska is in an excellent position to be the first state to adopt IRV.

Lt. Gov. Fran Ulmer, who oversees the state Division of Elections, has transformed the state's election infrastructure into one of the most technologically advanced systems in the U.S.

This technology along with Alaska's simpler and more centralized organization of election subdivisions places the state in an ideal position to make an easy conversion to IRV.

Help place Alaska at the forefront of democracy. Vote yes on Ballot Measure No. 1 next Tuesday.

Additionally, three of the last 11 governors have been elected by majority rather than two of the last 10.

And, the cost of installing instant runoff voting is $175,000, not $175.
