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.

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. To be eligible to vote, you must register with the Alaska Division of Elections no later than 30 days before the election.

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. Read and 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 an Anchorage Vote Center, or by mailing it through the U.S. Postal Service with first class postage. ​
