Anchorage municipal voters, it is your time to act. This past week the Muni Election Office sent a voter information card to every Muni voter on the State Voter File.
Inspect every card you received for accuracy.
If the address is correct, you should expect your Muni by mail ballot after March 15, 2022.
If your address is not correct, go to State of Alaska’s Online Voter Registration website: voterregistration.alaska.gov and update your information.
If the card is addressed to someone no longer living at this address, you must return the card to sender. Your action stops the Muni from sending a ballot to that voter at your address.
Your effort saves the Muni $2 – no wasted ballot is created and mailed.
You are participating in a real election integrity operation. Returning the card does not cancel that registration. Important actions do occur:
- The Muni stops sending that ballot envelope to your address.
- The state voter role is marked as undeliverable for that voter.
- This returned card becomes the first step in canceling the voter registration.
Let’s improve voter turnout by reducing the number of wasted ballots distributed.
Want a cleaner state voter file, follow the instruction of the card: if you are not the addressee,
Please write “Return to Sender” on the card and place in the mail.
