IT’S NOT THAT FAR AWAY
This week, the Anchorage Municipal Clerk’s Office mailed a second set of address verification postcards to 208,000 qualified registered voters in the municipality.
Anchorage voters should receive their postcard in the mail this week.
CAMPAIGNING GETS REAL
The early voting means Anchorage voters will start choosing the local leaders on about March 13. By the time the sun rises on April 3, most of the ballots will already have been marked and in.
Candidates are having to change their strategies to address this new calendar, where essentially everyone is going to an absentee ballot format.
Will there be a need for the traditional sign-waving on April 3? Or will volunteers be better used going door to door to get people to turn in their ballots? How will candidates pace their resources as the April 3 deadline closes in?
VOTER QUESTIONS? ATTEND A PRESENTATION
The Anchorage Municipal Clerk’s Office is accepting requests for community presentations about how vote by mail will work in the April 3 municipal election.
If your group would like a Vote by Mail presentation, the clerk will review your request at www.muni.org/VBMpresentationrequest.
