Commission recommends no further inquiry into election

Over half and they dont see a problem? Pay attention people.

The Anchorage Election Commission said Wednesday it was recommending against hiring an outside investigator to look into the city's chaotic April 3 election even as it found that more precincts had run out of ballots than previously

The eight-member panel unveiled the findings in a report approved Wednesday at City Hall.
