Alaskans are in for a long wait for a final result after write in ballots topped the list in the Senate race between the Tea Party’s Joe Miller and Lisa Murkowski.
Murkowski waged a write-in campaign after losing to Tea Party candidate Joe Miller in the primary. This meant she had to teach everyone how to spell her name in addition to filling in an oval thingy on the ballot.
Write-in votes exceed total votes gathered by either Miller or the guy who ran on the Democratic ticket. So now comes the long count, but by the time the result is known no one outside of Alaska will likely care.
