Voting deadline approaches for Anchorage election
The deadline to vote in Anchorage's second vote-by-mail election is Tuesday, April 2; ballots must be returned or postmarked by midnight.
Registered voters should already have received their ballots in the mail. If you didn’t get one and think you should have, call the voter hotline at 243-VOTE (8683).
Completed ballots can be returned in one of three ways: through the mail, to secure drop boxes or at Accessible Vote Centers.
Municipal Clerk Barbara Jones's office encourages voters who return their ballots by mail to have them hand-canceled at a post office to ensure they are postmarked by Election Day.
Sixteen secure drop boxes are available throughout the municipality. They’ll be continuously open until 8 p.m. on April 2.
As long as you’re in line by then, you’ll be able to cast your ballot. Find a map of the locations on the city's website.
On Election Day, voters can also use one of six Accessible Vote Centers. From 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., visit the locations at Anchorage City Hall, the Loussac Library, Election Center, O'Malley's on the Green and Eagle River Town Center.
The Muldoon Mall location is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
As long as you’re in line by closing time, you’ll be able to cast your ballot.
