Wrist bands should wipe out write-ins

Posted: Tuesday, November 23, 2010

I lived and voted in Juneau from 1977 to 1994, and during that time you were not allowed any campaign paraphernalia, even bumper stickers on your car if you parked within 200 feet of a polling place.

Now, what good were Lisa Murkowski's wrist bands if they could not be worn around, in, or near the voting booth? If in fact they were worn, that should constitute a violation of Alaska's voting regulations.

If one person wore this bracelet into the booth, it should nullify all the write-in votes because you would have to prove who did or did not wear this band. Since the bracelets promoted Murkowski, the onus should be on her. She is a senator and should know the dos and don'ts around the voting booth.
