Mat-Su Borough has an election on Nov. 3, which aligns with the General Election. The borough is home to about 108,000 residents in its 25,258 square miles.

In 2018, voters in the borough passed a measure to move the elections from October to the General Election Day. The first November election was held in 2019, and had only a 9 percent turnout, but this year voters in the Mat-Su have a president to vote for, and turnout may be much higher.

Voters in the cities of Wasilla, Palmer, and Houston also have separate elections that take place in October. The candidates on the Nov. 3 ballot for Mat-Su voters are:

TROSHYNSKI, Jeanne, Candidate for School Board District 3
