Yes, it’s Saturday, but there’s a special primary tonight in Alaska to replace Rep. Don Young who died in March that includes Sarah Palin, some dude named Santa Claus and 46 other hopefuls with the top four vote getters moving on to the general election. Townhall’s Spencer Brown breaks it down here:

We might not know the winner for some time, however. Spencer writes:

The special U.S. House primary is the first time The Last Frontier has used its new top-four primary system in which all candidates — in this case a whopping 48 people — appear on one ballot with the top four vote getters moving on to the general election, regardless of party, with the ultimate victor declared based on ranked-choice voting.

While Saturday is the date set for the special primary, the four winning primary candidates competing in the special general election — taking place on August 16 — won’t be fully determined on primary night. As the Alaska Division of Elections explains, ballots must either be postmarked by June 11 or physically received. The first ballot count will take place on primary day, June 11, followed by a second count on June 15 and a third count on June 17. The deadline for absentee ballots to arrive is June 21, the date on which the final ballot count will take place before the planned certification date of June 25.

With that said, here are the results as they come in via our partner at Decision Desk HQ.
