Are you registered to vote? Sunday is deadline

Sunday is the deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 3 General Election.

Most eligible Alaskans are already registered because when they apply for their Alaska Permanent Fund dividend, they are automatically registered to vote, unless they opt out manually.

Subsequent to the automatic registration, 590,422 are now registered to vote in Alaska. That is 12,437 more than one year ago and 22,623 more voters than there were in 2018. There are only 730,000 Alaskans, which means that 80 percent of all Alaskans are registered to vote. The voting age is 18.

For those who recently moved to the state or who have moved and need to update their information with the Division of Elections, registration is accomplished easily online.

Register online, or you can register in person at the Division of Elections Offices on Saturday, from 12-4 pm, and Sunday, 12-4 pm.

  • Great post! Thank you, Suzanne!

  • Yes but not the correct political party. In August I changed my political affiliation from Undeclared to Republican. I received my new voter registration card and now my political affiliation is N (nonpartisan), what. I called the state and they assured me it was a clerical error and they would send me a new voter ID card in 4-6 weeks , that was on 9/23/20. I was told it would be here before November 3. It pays to look at your voter ID Card.

  • This happened to my friend too. The elections office said the same. I also know 2 people who are rabid leftists, attacking any conservative they find, yet they volunteer at their district’s voting location for any election. I hate being paranoid but I’m not feeling confident in a fair election. I wonder how many others have had similar experiences.
