MOA Election Center
Municipal elections are headquartered at the Election Center, 619 E Ship Creek Ave, where ballot envelopes are received, signatures are verified and ballots are tabulated.
This is also where the Election Commission meets in Public Session of Canvass to review and vote on preliminarily rejected or challenged ballot envelopes before the Anchorage Assembly certifies each election.

About the Election Commission
The Election Commission is a five-member commission appointed by the Mayor, approved by the Assembly, and staffed by the Municipal Clerk.
The Election Commission adjudicates ballots that have been preliminarily rejected by election officials, reviews and reports on the election results to the Assembly, provides advice on the conduct of local elections, and recommends changes to local law relating to elections. Commission members often participate in election worker training, logic and accuracy testing, and election observation. Meetings include a yearly organizational meeting and the Public Session of Canvass; any additional meetings are held at the call of the Assembly, Municipal Clerk, or the Commission Chair.
If you have a question or issue for the Election Commission, please contact the Commission in care of the Municipal Clerk's Office at firstname.lastname@example.org, at 343-4311, or at 632 W 6th Avenue, Suite 250.
