Live coverage of write-in count!

360 North is airing live coverage of the count of write-in ballots for the U.S. Senate race. The Division of Elections plans to start tabulating write-in votes from the November 4th general election on Wednesday (Nov. 10) in Juneau. 360 North will televise the entire count, which may last three or four days, with coverage starting at 9 a.m. and running all day through Friday or Saturday. The write in-count is expected to draw a large number of observers, attorneys and media, watching the work of 15 teams of elections officials.

“Given the high interest in the outcome of the Senate election, we believe it important for all Alaskans to be able to observe the process,” said Bill Legere, 360 North's general manager. “While we don’t expect much drama or excitement, every Alaskan will be able to watch through our cameras,” Legere said.
