1998 General Election Write-In Governor, Lt-Governor
UNOFFICIAL WRITE-IN RESULTS
GOVERNOR - LT. GOVERNOR RACE
Alaska regulations mandate that the Division of Elections count write-in votes for individual candidates if the votes for "write-in" are the second highest in number in a race that has two or more candidates. This happened in the race for Governor/Lt. Governor in the 1998 General Election. Following is the unofficial breakdown.
|WRITE-IN NAMES FOR GOVERNOR / LT. GOV.||TOTAL VOTES||% OF WRITE-IN VOTES||% OF TOTAL VOTES CAST|
|Robin Taylor *||35,263||80.90%||17.60%|
|Robin Taylor / Jerry Ward||4,204||9.60%||2.10%|
|Robin Taylor / Misc.||742||1.70%||0.04%|
|Wayne Ross *||676||1.60%||0.34%|
|Wayne Ross / Misc.||125||0.29%||0.06%|
|Nick Begich *||553||1.30%||0.30%|
|Nick Begich / Misc.||26||0.06%||0.01%|
* Please note that by reporting the totals for candidates without a Lt. Governor as a running mate, the Division of Elections is not assuming that ballots cast in this manner would be considered legally valid. That is a matter that would need to be resolved by law or in the courts.
