Election Day: 9:30 a.m.

Polls opened at 7 a.m. At 8 a.m. Bill Walker and a team of sign wavers were at the corner of Minnesota and Northern Lights in Anchorage. GOP senate candidate Dan Sullivan was spotted waving signs at the corner of Northern Lights and the Seward Highway. The weather forecast for Anchorage is scattered clouds with a high of 32 degrees. Right now its in the mid 20’s. Barrow is expecting light snow with temperatures hovering around zero degrees. Right now, its -2 degrees in Fairbanks with scattered clouds with hopes of highs around 15 degrees. Weather in southeast and Alaska’s capital city can expect rain and highs in the low 40’s.   

I’ll be blogging all day. If you see anything interesting out there, please send to amandamcoyne@yahoo.com.

    Turn out looks quite high at the Juneau Valley polling locations. I checked at 0945 this morning and was surprised to see the parking lot at one of the polling places more than half full. Election workers at that location reported that business has been “Very Busy all morning”.

    How about that! You can get people out to vote… Something in the neighborhood of $70 million was spent in Alaska for this election with 50 million of that just for the senate race.

    Alaska Division of elections shows the number of registered voters in the state as being 509,011 and that translates into $137 per vote if you get them all. My guess is that even with very heavy turnout only about sixty percent will actually vote. So effectively, something like $229.00 was spent for every vote cast in Alaska.

    Wouldn’t you rather they just mailed you a check?
