The question has become moot. Thanks to all who participated.

I would say yes as there are no more legal efforts to try and stop the results being known. Only concern would be, that the results would not be offical, until they have been certified by the State of Alaska. The state is scheduled to do this tomorrow, Thursday, 30 Dec 10. This would be, the creator of the question, call. The remaing court fight is not over the results of the election, but only the handling of the contested ballots, by the state.

I’ve been trying to figure out a way that Miller could could reverse the results of the election, and I have a hard time finding one. Even if you toss out all the disputed ballots, Murkowski still wins. What I’ll probably do (unless the sentiment here is strongly different) is wait until the Senate seats Murkowski, as the Senate is the ultimate determiner of who won. If some future court action should somehow reverse that (and I think the chance of that happening is about the same as that of me winning an Academy Award), I can always reverse the cashout.

She wins anyway that you turn. I can not see the election results getting overturned by the courts or through Millers efforts. He is grasping at straws to continue his efforts. He may get the procedures changed, which I doubt, in the handling of the mis-spelled names but that would be all.
