JUNEAU, Alaska | Mystery ballot could sway control of Alaska state government
JUNEAU, Alaska — A mystery ballot found on a precinct table on Election Day but not counted then could decide a tied Alaska state House race and thwart Republican efforts to control the chamber and all of state government.
The ballot arrived in Juneau last Friday in a secrecy sleeve in a bin with other ballot materials. It appeared to be marked for Democrat Kathryn Dodge.
Officials are investigating the origin of the uncounted ballot before deciding whether to tally it.
