FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - A candidate statement from a Fairbanks state senator is absent from the state informational pamphlet sent to voters, but he’s not blaming the Division of Elections.

Republican Pete Kelly tells the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (https://bit.ly/11udrgA) he missed messages from the Elections Division for submitting a statement and called too late to make its deadline.

He’s running against Democrat Tamara Kruse Roselius.

The Division of Elections sends two letters to notify candidates of the opportunity to be in the pamphlet - most of the time.

The division acknowledges it failed to send proper notification to independent gubernatorial candidate Bill Walker.

He was not included in the pamphlet sent to voters last week. The division planned to print and send a supplemental pamphlet for gubernatorial and lieutenant governor candidates.
