The write ins have not yet been challenged.
Not getting my hopes up, either, but remember that the "write ins" have not yet been examined and, based on history, some 6-7% of them may be disqualified.

If the dent in the lead is large enough then maybe there will be enough write-ins thrown out to make a difference.

The result of this race is NOT good for Palin. It’s her home state, and she backed Miller to the max.
If she can’t persuade her home state.....

It does mean that over 10% of the write-ins are going to him. I wonder how many are going to neither of them.

I’ve been wondering whether thousands, who heard and answered the plea of the radio guy up there, didn’t go out and write in Smith, or Jones.....or whomever.

He got 914 votes out of 30K did I read that right? That does not seem very good to me am I missing something

My rough map shows Miller needs 15K of the remaining 22K votes to win. Not looking good at all.

The write in ballots marked Miller they should go in the Miller column. The Lt. Governor said they will not count them. Huh?
Update, 4:07 p.m.:
There’s a new batch of statewide numbers. The state now reports having counted over 14,000 absentee and early ballots today.
Miller has gained a little bit of ground since the last absentee count. He now has 12,218 fewer votes than the write-in ballots.
That means he’s picked up 1,221 votes so far in today’s count.
There should be around 8,000 more absentees left to count today if the Division of Elections sticks to its original plan of counting about 22,000 of the absentee/early votes today.
There were a total of more than 30,000 of such ballots received by the state. More absentee counts will be held next week.

The count now has Joe Miller trailing "Write-ins" in the overall count by 12,525 votes
Yabut, I thought there were a hundred different "write-in" splitting that vote.

Bad news. With a 6% difference to make up, that won’t be enough of a trend.

Besides write-ins, there's also 30,500 absentee ballots
to be counted. Miller only needs to get 13,439 out of the 30,500 to make his vote count exceed the number of write-ins, and this win the race.
