AK judge eliminates witness sig during pandemic

An Alaska court judge on Monday ruled enforcement of witness requirements for absentee ballots during a pandemic “impermissibly burdens the right to vote” but did not immediately put into effect an order eliminating the requirement for the general election. Superior Court Judge Dani Crosby gave the parties until late Tuesday to propose how the Division of Elections should communicate the message and said she would later issue an order “specifying how to implement elimination” of the requirement for the Nov. 3 election. She noted the state might appeal to the Alaska Supreme Court. Becky Borher, The Associated Press.
