1998 General Election Write-In Governor, Lt-Governor
Unofficial Results

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.

* 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.
