    Ozmar, do you have respect for ANY Americans? Is there any negative stereotype about us you don't swallow, hook, line and sinker?

    The Miller people are not winning friends this way.

    But the law is the law. If Alaska law is that fussy, you have to follow it.

    And that is not an easy name to spell. That 81,000 folks spelled a slavic name correctly is actually a pretty good number.

    Gov Brown ran a write in campaign in the Oregon Primary back in 76. The law in Oregon required "Edmund G Brown Jr." or the write in was a fail. I forget what proportion of write ins were disallowed that year, but I think Carter got enough delegates by then to make the whole thing moot.

    I'm sorry, were you going to reply to the topic? I just ask this, because you seem to be a prime example of why the some elements of the global community despise Americans, because you just don't seem very bright.

    Must you object to every thread I post, on the basis of my posting alone, or do you have any legitimate complaint to make?

    My dear, if you don't like my threads, you are more than welcome to avoid them. I am stating this in the most tactful way.

    Why would Joe Miller not use every legal means at his disposal to demand only those ballots that spelled her name correctly were counted?

    What is intent?

    If you don't know who cast the vote, how can you tell what their intent was?

    Maybe it's because I'm exposed to a lot of online literature and am familiar with the three syllable name that I forget that it could be hard to spell for people who don't often see it spelled out.

    But then I think that the name isn't something insane like Kaczynski, or Szczechinowicz, or Moskiewicz, or Chodcowicz...

    If it says Mukowski, I think the intent is pretty clear. Common sense....:eusa_whistle:

    No, it's not. And that's not even the way the law is written.
