The winner of Alaska’s hotly contested three-way Senate race was “Write-in,” which claimed 41 percent of the vote total. Lisa Murkowski, the Republican incumbent, presumably collected most of the write-in votes.
Alaska law does not make it easy for write-in candidates – no stickers or stamps may be brought into the voting booths – but Senator Murkowski’s campaign used creative tactics to instruct supporters in how to properly cast a write-in vote. Among them: Rubber wristbands and temporary tattoos were passed out to voters, the campaign held a jingle contest, and it printed up T-shirts and stickers imprinted with drawings of cows and skis to remind voters to spell out “Mur-kow-ski.”
