Municipal voting ticks up over 2019 with 7 days left

More than 27,544 Anchorage residents have cast their ballots in the election that ends in seven days on April 7.

That compares favorably to the approximately 20,000 who had voted by this time last year in the mail-in municipal election in Anchorage. Two years ago, 25,000 had voted by the time the last week of mail-in voting had begun.

Conservatives usually don’t turn out for municipal elections as strongly as public-union Democrats, and the unions are well-oiled vote in the Anchorage bowl. But this year, with the coronavirus pandemic changing everyone’s schedules, many people are staying home and are perhaps finding more time to take care of their civic duty.

Alaska Family Council has given its endorsement to the following candidates:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only one of the six Anchorage Accessible Vote Centers will open as scheduled on Monday, March 30th for the April 7, 2020 Regular Municipal Election. 

The City Hall Accessible Vote Center is now open:

  • 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. 

If voters have questions about voting or the election, voters should call the Voter Holtine at 243-VOTE(8683).
