Voting in the Regular Municipal Election

Anchorage votes at home, which means ballots will be mailed to your address of record in the State of Alaska Voter Registration database. To view your Assembly District, please view our Assembly District Map coming soon!

It is important for your address information in the Voter Registration database to be current. To review your registration information, visit myvoterinformation.alaska.gov. To register to vote, or to update your voter registration information, visit voterregistration.alaska.gov. The voter registration deadline is March 8, 2020.

Voting at home is as easy as 1 - 2 - 3.

  1. Once you receive your ballot in the mail, mark your choices by filling in the ovals and then, place your ballot into the enclosed envelope.
  2. Sign the declaration on the back of the ballot return envelope.
  3. Return your ballot by placing it in a Secure Drop Box, or returning it to a Voter Service Center, or by mailing it through the U.S. Postal Service.

Secure Drop Boxes

Secure Drop Boxes will be opened beginning three weeks before Election Day for voters to return their ballot at any time before 8:00 p.m. on Election night.
