Spreadsheet mania: Candidates for Senate, House primary


Photo: The Division of Elections white board at the Gambell Street office on Friday, where all candidates who filed for office that day were listed for public consumption.

For the political junkies among us, we provide the ultimate high: A color-coded spreadsheet of the candidates, as we know them, for the Alaska Primary – legislative races.

Some listed here may not have completed all their paperwork with Alaska Public Offices Commission or the Division of Elections, and may be disqualified. Others may not appear here because they mailed in their information. You can bet some names are missing. We’ll update and reload as the fog clears.

Note: Red for Republican, blue for Democrat, and purple for other parties. Some candidates are listed as going to the General Election via petition.
