Alaska! Land of snow, libertarians, and... universal basic income? Y'all are odd—I mean independent. Never change, Alaska. Just kidding, actually please do change and get your chilly butts to the polls to vote for Democrats. Alaska could have up to 5 elections in 2022, including the statewide primary on August 16 and the general on November 8. Other election dates will be confirmed and finalized after the state publishes their 2022 election calendar. (Source: Ballot Ready)

  • Can I register at the voting booth?

    Sadly, no. So do it now! Then reward yourself with a cookie.

  • Do I have to be registered as a Democrat or Republican to vote in my primary?

    Alaska has a top-four primary, which means that all candidates, regardless of party, are listed on the same primary ballot. The top four vote-getters, regardless of their party, advance to the general election.

  • Can I vote by mail?

    Yes! You can request your ballot be mailed, faxed, or emailed to you at home, then mail or fax it back. This is called an absentee ballot. All ballots must be submitted by August 16th. Request your ballot here. Be sure to request by August 6th if requesting by mail and by August 15th if requesting online.

  • Can I vote early?

    Yes. Early voting will be held on August 6-7th and August 13th-14th.

  • Do I need an ID?

    Yes, yes you do. An Alaska driver's license, a State ID card, a U.S passport, a Military ID card, a voter ID card, an Alaska hunting or fishing license (cool), a current utility bill, paycheck, bank statement, or government issued document all work. You can get all the specifics below from VoteRiders.
