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.
Soon it will be time to vote in the General Election. Alaskan voters will participate in a Ranked Choice Voting election. You will RANK the candidates running in each race in order of your preference.
The voter registration deadline is October 9th. Early in-person voting starts on October 24th, at regional polling locations. Regular polling locations will be open to cast your ballot on Tuesday, November 8th.
We encourage everyone to fill out their full ballot and rank all candidates in RCV elections, so your voice is a part of the decision-making process regardless of 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 Voting 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.
