CLERK TELLS VOTERS: DON’T LICK BALLOT ENVELOPE ADHESIVE
The Municipal Clerk of Anchorage has announced that only one of six accessible voting centers will open as scheduled starting March 30 for the Anchorage Municipal Election. The hours are:
- M-F, March 30 – April 6, 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
- Tuesday, April 7, 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Those with mail-in ballots will need to drop those ballots off at a ballot drop box at one of these locations.
The Clerk’s Office also is asking those who vote at home to not lick the adhesive on their ballot envelope, but to use alternate methods, such as a moist cloth or glue stick.
Voters may also send their ballots back by U.S. Postal Service. The stamp costs approximately 70 cents for this year’s two-page ballot, and it must be postmarked by April 7, 2020.
Assemblywoman Suzanne LaFrance gave Facebook advice to voters on how to game the Post Office, encouraging people to drop the ballot in the mail without postage, and shift the cost to the U.S. Postal Service.
Voters with questions about voting or the election may call the Voter Hotline at 907-243-8683. The Call Center Team can provide voters options to vote without risking their health, the health of Election Workers or our community.
