Lawsuit Challenges Alaska’s New Ballot Measure
The Alaskan Independence Party and two Anchorage residents are suing the state of Alaska to overturn Ballot Measure 2.
This ballot measure is a sweeping election reform initiative installing ranked-choice voting in Alaska’s general elections.
Additionally, the lawsuit claims the measure would violate the rights to free political association, free speech, petition, due process and other rights guaranteed by the Alaska and U.S. constitutions.
Filed against the state of Alaska and the Alaska Division of Elections, the lawsuit requests the measure be nullified and not be used in future elections.
