Facts:

In 2016, Alaska voters approved a law which automatically registers or updates voter registration information using the information from the Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD) unless the applicant opts-out.  So, if you got your PFD, AND, you didn’t opt out, then you are registered at the address you were at when you applied.

Alaska residents who will turn 18 within 90 days of the election are also eligible to vote – so get the word out!  However, those voters WILL have to register in the year they become 18, so make sure you register.

In Alaska, you can register and vote on the day of the General Election but can only vote for President & Vice President.
