They were counting absentee ballots since the 9th. I doubt there are many out there. If write in has 101,000, Joe has 91,000, and the Dem has about 53,000. That’s 245,000 votes counted already.

That’s slightly above normal for turnout in a US Senate race/Governor for Alaska. I just don’t believe they have more than a couple thousand absentees left, the military ballots are part of what’s been counted.

Joe lost this because many Dems and Stevens voters wrote in Murkowski. The Dem nominee for Gov got around 30% and 37% for House Rep. They are happier with Murkowski for sure then Miller but the Dem could have won this race with 37%.

None of these numbers are matching up. As of the close of the day Monday, counting contested ballots, Murkowski had 92,164 and Miller had 90,458, according to the news reports. So I’m not sure where you’re getting the extra 9000 or so votes for Murkowski.

And the reports said that the counting of the absentee votes was just to begin on Monday.

So the accounts are not matching up. Makes it a lot easier to cheat if nobody knows what the heck is going on. These reporters need to get it straight, and if the election officials won’t give it to them straight then we have a problem.
