    Alaskans have collected enough signatures to possibly remove the scourge of rank choice voting in the state.

    Last March in Honolulu, I held an entire event to rail on the problems surrounding Ranked Choice Voting (RCV), also known in some parts as Instant Runoff Voting (IRV).  It is the latest new-fangled idea that is creating and sustaining mass confusion and non-acceptance of our so-called elections outcomes, and it is already circling the drain in Alaska, where it achieved its intended purpose of retaining Lisa Murkowski in the United State Senate, where she has twice survived certain political demise in her miserable tenure there and repelling populist Sarah Palin in her U.S. House bid, writes Seth Keshel on his Subtsack.

    I’ve long been amazed at the willingness of the Alaska GOP to willingly hand over its state in its own legislation, comparing its actions to a fictitious scenario in which California would strip away all election cheats and tactics in place, thereby forcing it to trend to the right and potentially flip.  Alaska Republicans are the ones slinging mail in ballots from Barrow to Ketchikan and Nome to Skagway, introducing Automatic Voter Registration through the Permanent Fund Dividend, and running braindead measures to get RCV on board so insufferable politicians like Murkowski can suck the public dry another six years at a time.

    Alaskans for Honest Elections met the threshold to have a referendum to ban Ranked Choice Voting appear on the General Election ballot this November, exceeding the required number of signatures by over 60%.

    Georgians should take this as a cautionary tale to stop RCV or 'instant runoff elections' from making its way into the state. The results are ALWAYS nefarious.

    As a member of ERIC (Electronic Registration Information :Center), AK had THE most bloated voter rolls (USEAC data, 2021. 126%) of any state, and those phantom voters come in handy for RCV.. The method NEVER reflects the choice of the people, as Mr. Wood says. The push to use it is always a red flag on the integrity of the pusher(s), NB: Youngkin sold RCV to the feckless VA Rep Party to use it in the gubernatorial election of 2021, and they bit. VOILA! The Globalist won!!
