Daily ballot count: 30,749 Anchorage residents have voted

GET YOUR BALLOT DROP BOX LOCATION HERE

As of 7 pm on Tuesday, the Anchorage election office had logged 30,749 ballots received of a possible 198,000 ballots that had been mailed on March 13.

That’s a 15 percent turnout to date for the city’s first-ever mail-in election, which ends April 3.

Anchorage voters have six days to go to get their municipal ballots in.

Eagle River/Chugiak still is underperforming with fewer ballots than have been voted in prior elections.

Some 61 percent of ballots that have been turned in have come through the mail. The drop box that has been most popular is the one at the Loussac Library (address below). The election office has received more than 20,000 ballots back because of wrong addresses or “moved.”

Must Read Alaska readers who are curious to know if their ballot has reached the city’s election office can send a personal message to Must Read Alaska on Facebook. We’ll search the most recent list of who has voted and let you know if your ballot was received.

Alternately, call the Municipality’s Voter Hotline at 907-243-VOTE(8683).
