Voter​ Information​

Options to VOTE in the Special Municipal Election​

After the adoption of a new Anchorage Assembly district boundary map through Reapportionment, the Assembly passed a resolution declaring the process to fill the new 12th seat, now known as Seat L, and hold a special mail-in/vote at home election to fill that seat on June 21, 2022. This election will apply only to the voters in District 1, the new North Anchorage District, which encompasses Downtown, South Addition, Government Hill, Mountain View, Fairview, Northstar and the northern parts of Spenard, Airport Heights, Russian Jack Park, East and Midtown Anchorage.

To check what di​​strict you live in, visit the Assembly Districts map and type in your residence address into the search field in the upper left corner of the map. You can view the map ​by clicking HERE​​. ​
