Test run for voter disenfranchisement 2012?

City clerk: 53 precincts ran out of ballots


More than 40 percent of Anchorage polling places faced ballot shortages at some point during Tuesday's chaotic municipal election, the city clerk's office said Friday.

Election workers have "preliminarily reviewed" all 121 of the precincts, and found that 53 ran out of ballots at some point, said municipal clerk Barbara Gruenstein.

The clerk's office also noted an unusual number of questioned ballots cast even before the shortages.

More than 6,000 questioned ballots were cast in the election, as compared to just more than 1,000 in last year's city election.
