The Lieutenant Governor has to ensure free, fair, and honest elections. I was a part of the Wally Hickel campaign in the disputed 1978 election for governor. The court found thousands of irregularities in that election. I will never forget how an audit we did helped us to find over 200 votes hidden in a locker weeks after the primary election. Afterward I helped former legislator Tim Kelly improve election laws, and as Lieutenant Governor I would continue to work for free and fair elections in Alaska.
