Judge rules write-in list cannot be provided in Alaska

Alaska won't be allowed to provide a list of approved write-in candidates after all.

Earlier we noted:

"The Alaska Division of Elections has come under fire for providing a list of certified write-in candidates to voters at polling places, an unprecedented move that critics suggest was done to aid Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who is running as a write-in," Roll Call reports. "The state Republican and Democratic parties have joined to sue the Division of Elections to force the agency to stop providing the list, the Anchorage Daily News reported Tuesday."

Now AP reports:

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska judge blocks elections office from providing list of write-in candidates at polls.
