The counting timeline in Alaska

From NBC's Kristin Welker
Per Gail Fenumiai, head of the Division of Elections,
she and the lieutenant governor are meeting today to map out a schedule to
recount the write-in ballots.

They would like to get the count started "earlier rather than later" and
could possibly begin counting as soon as next week -- instead of the
initially reported date of Nov. 18.

The count will take place in Juneau. They have 81,876 write-in ballots
that must be counted by hand so far and still have a few precincts that
have yet to report.

Cameras will be allowed to capture the counting process.

Once the results are certified (this date is also pending) a candidate
has 5 days to request a recount. From that initial certification date, a
candidate also has a total of 10 days to contest the results.
