I guess all the Republican-appointed vote fraud busters are actually far-left activists helping with the cover-up of the Big Overthrow
I don't know...I whine about the electoral college just about every time I see it brought up. I guess that is just one though.I sure don't remember any of us dems whining like a little bitch along the lines of V3 about the election results.

Did I say that? I stated that the legislature will make corrections. I’m talking about the way it works not correcting the results. Which was why I posted the WAPO piece that explains some tweaks they could make.And, Alaskan voters.
But, you think the legislature should overrule them.
The only reason she won is the silly ranked choice voting. I suspect the legislature in Alaska will be looking at a correction in the very near future.
I think the winner won under the system in place. I think that system has an obvious flaw backed up with the link I provided from the WaPo.Clearly, you feel the wrong person won. And, you think the Legislature is likely to meddle.
And, you approve of said meddling.
Something tells me you would object if we were discussing a Republican having won in a traditionally blue state, and the need to the Legislature to fix the election process.
Turns out the WaPo article you linked to was an opinion piece.I think the winner won under the system in place. I think that system has an obvious flaw backed up with the link I provided from the WaPo.
... Rank-choice voting was part of a fairly comprehensive revamping of their voting system. ...
How in the H-E-double-toothpick is a red blooded American supposed to know who the enemy is if the ballots don’t identify the Americans and the democRATS?
I like that you provide a basis for your positions. I agree with everything you've said about Alaska's system and how a more popular candidate can fall through the cracks. Why not pick up the same argument with the Electoral College system for national elections? You really can't argue one and deny the other.I think the winner won under the system in place. I think that system has an obvious flaw backed up with the link I provided from the WaPo.
It is not meddling to update how elections are run in fact the constitution makes it clear that state legislatures have that power. The original vote to move to that system barely passed. So adjusting it to reflect the true will of the majority is not out of the question.
Alaska voters approved the state’s new election system in a 2020 ballot initiative, when it passed by just 1 percent — fewer than 4,000 votes

Search for Widespread Voter Fraud Finds Very Little Voter Fraud“The whole concept of voter impersonation fraud is such a horribly exaggerated problem," one expert says
BY PETER WADE
IN THE WAKE of Donald Trump’s allegations of massive voter fraud that he claims cost him the 2020 election, Republicans in a number of states set up law enforcement units to investigate potential instances of election fraud. According to an Associated Press investigation, these units have only received “scattered complaints” in the weeks following the midterms, and investigations have yielded “no indication of systemic problems.”
“I am not aware of any significant detection of fraud on Election Day, but that’s not surprising,” Paul Smith, senior vice president of the Campaign Legal Center, told the AP. “The whole concept of voter impersonation fraud is such a horribly exaggerated problem. It doesn’t change the outcome of the election, it’s a felony, you risk getting put in jail and you have a high possibility of getting caught. It’s a rare phenomena.”
States including Virginia, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, and Texas all created election integrity units following Trump’s allegations of rampant voter fraud. The former president’s dangerous and false rhetoric that the 2020 election was stolen from him seems to have convinced a significant number of Republicans that voter fraud is a real issue. Ahead of this month’s midterms, 45 percent of Republican respondents said they had little to no confidence that votes would be accurately counted.
But according to the AP’s investigation in Georgia and five other battleground states that Trump claimed were stolen from him in 2020, there is no evidence that widespread fraud is taking place. In fact, the AP reported, certification of the results in most states are going “smoothly” and “with few complaints.” In fact, Georgia has not opened any election investigations under a newly passed law that gave state law enforcement the authority to investigate potential voter fraud without a request from election officials. Its only recent investigation into voter fraud concerns a 2021 allegation that voting equipment was breached in a county Trump won by almost 40 points.
In Florida, under Gov. Ron DeSantis who is no Trump fan but who still took up his cause of hunting down election fraud, the state’s election unit arrested 20 people for illegally voting in 2020 because they had a prior felony conviction. But some of those people received voter ID cards from the state, and charges have been dropped or dismissed in at least two of those 20 cases. Florida officials did not respond to the AP’s questions about fraud allegations in the 2022 elections. In Virginia, a spokesperson for the state’s attorney general said the Election Integrity Unit has received some complaints but declined to comment on whether those complaints led to investigations.
When it comes to voting and election fairness, fraud has been repeatedly proven to be rare. Voter suppression, on the other hand, poses a much larger threat to our democracy.
