Miller Election Night Victory Update-All Booths In- His Lead increases

The Alaska Secretary of State official election returns website reports all 438 booths have now been counted.

Joe Miller's final, unofficial, vote total is 47,027 (50.90%)  and Murkowski's 45,359 (49.10%).The returns from the last two booths have shown an increase of a few hundred votes for Miller which is a promising sign as they may have come from very rural areas which might have been expected to have gone for Murkowski.

Another encouraging sign is that a number of the postal ballots to come, which will determine the final result, will be military votes and with Miller being a decorated war veteran he might get the edge with those.

Win or lose however,the fact that miller did so incredibly well is in a major part,as he acknowledged, to the endorsement of Sarah Palin.
