With only days to go before the November election, Republicans and Democrats in Alaska have finally found something they agree on.  Neither party is happy with the way the state division of elections is providing lists of write in candidates at polling places. Monday, the Alaska Democratic Party filed sued the state to stop the practice, and the Republican Party of Alaska has joined the Dems in the complaint.
