Politico has this story, that on the last day, over 100 people signed up to be declared write-in candidates for U.S. Senate in Alaska. The intent is to make the list of declared write-in candidates so long that the list supposedly won’t be useful to Lisa Murkowski. However, if the list if alphabetized, it will still be useful.
No one with a surname of “M” and a first name of “Lisa” filed. Here is the list. Thanks to Rick Hasen for that link.
This idea spread on a talk show. It is somewhat similar to an attempt in California in 2003 to encourage people to file for the ballot in the special gubernatorial recall election, by a wealthy individual who was willing to pay the California filing fee. His motivation was to sabotage the recall, and the recall did end up with a ballot with 135 candidates listed.
