The early voting period in Alaska begins Monday, Oct. 19, and ends at the close of business Nov. 2 (times vary depending on location). Although Monday is Alaska Day and a State worker holiday, election offices will be open for absentee and early voters.

You will need to show ID to vote. That can be voter ID card; driver’s license; state ID card; military ID card; passport; hunting or fishing license; or other current or valid photo ID. You may also use a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check or other government-issued document as proof. If you do not have ID, you may vote a “questioned ballot.”

You may also vote a mail-in ballot. Fill out an online application to request your mail-in ballot. You can also request a ballot online or by email.

Fill out the application completely. You should request your ballot as far in advance of the election as possible. The deadline to request a ballot by mail is (must be received by) Saturday, Oct. 24.

Your mail-in ballot must be postmarked by Tuesday, Nov. 3 and received no later than Friday, Nov. 13. You can find ballot tracking information here.

Alaska has an option to transmit absentee ballot applications electronically in 2020. You can request an absentee ballot application by electronic transmission until Monday, Nov. 2. For more information, see http://www.elections.alaska.gov/Core/votingbyonline.php
