1.  Register

Check your registration and address
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.

As every year, all Alaskan registered voters can vote Absentee by mail by requesting a ballot for the State House and General Elections.But you must request a ballot.

Alaska residents who will turn 18 within 90 days of the election are eligible to vote – so get the word out and make sure they check their status too. If you aren’t 18 before March, 2020, the automatic PFD process isn’t available. So check!

Go to for more information.

If you want to vote in person, you will still have the opportunity to do so. Don’t forget – early voting will be available for all of the upcoming elections and provides more convenience and less waiting in line.

2.  Research

Not voting means someone else picks for you. And, they may know far less than you do! Democracy is fragile, and your freedoms are upheld or diminished by those in power. The only way things will change, is if YOU vote. Talk to your friends and family. Encourage them to vote too!
