Something to keep in mind: 

Alaska's Primary Structure

Alaska law allows a political party to select who may participate in their party's primary. Parties may expand or limit who may participate in their Primary Election by submitting a written notice with a copy of their pre cleared by-laws to the Director of Elections no later than September 1st of the year prior to the year in which a Primary Election is to be held.

Based on political party by-laws submitted to the Division of Elections there are three ballot choices:

  • Alaska Democratic Party, Alaska Libertarian Party and Alaskan Independence Party Candidate with Ballot Measures ballot - any registered voter may vote this ballot;
  • Alaska Republican Party Candidate with Ballot Measures ballot - voters registered as Republican, Nonpartisan or Undeclared may vote this ballot; and
  • the Ballot Measures Only ballot - any registered voter may vote this ballot.

The political party affiliation listed on a voter's registration record 30 days prior to the election determines which primary ballot type a voter is eligible to vote. 

Questions?  Contact the Office of the City Clerk or the Alaska Division of Elections (866-948-8683).
