Thread Name: Elections: How do you do it at home?
Subject: RE: How do you do it at home?
I'm actually asking what you know of the election process and why it is better than the US system. It would also be interesting to discover our opinion on how it's done in your region of the US.

To start this off, I have to admit I don't know much of how it's done in Alaska. I do know we have some fairly scary representatives and senator here. And of course, since they have built up seniority, they have become pretty powerful in the various committees in Washington DC- and a lot of Alaska citizens don't want to lose that clout. Let's hear it for term limits!

Mike B, a friend of mine's mother died two years ago on December 20- on my friend's birthday. She wiped out both Christmas and my friend's birthday in one swoop! The only thing I can do is believe that there is a reason there that we just don't yet understand. My sympathies to you and your friend.
