The results are in for the primary for the Special Election for U.S Representative. We are still waiting to find out if we will be looking at 3 or 4 candidates in the Ranked Choice Election with voting starting in Late July. The U.S. House of Representatives makes laws that influence our daily lives. It holds hearings to inform the legislative process, conducts investigations to oversee the executive branch, and serves as the voice of the people and the states in the federal government. This is an important election, and your vote will matter.
This next part of the election will start late July and we will update you when we hear that ballots are hitting your mailbox. You get to vote by mail again!
Voting by mail is easy, safe, and secure! Make sure to sign the back of your ballot, and don't forget to have a family, a friend, or a neighbor witness your signature. Your ballot must be postmarked by Election Day on August 16.
This election next election will be Ranked Choice Voting. We encourage everyone to fill out their full ballot and rank all of the candidates so your voice is a part of the decision making process no matter who wins. You have the chance to still influence the election even if your top candidate is not the front runner.
See below for a rundown of how our ranked choice system works.
At The Alaska Center Education Fund, it is our belief that the more Alaskans get involved in the decisions affecting our home, the better the future will be for everyone. Increasing the number of Alaskans who vote is at the core of our strategy to promote a strong and healthy democracy.
By conducting both grassroots education and direct advocacy around common-sense voter reforms, we can work together as Alaskans to safeguard our democratic ideals.
