Vote at Home

Voting absentee is great!

When you absentee vote, it helps you keep yourself, the people you live with, and your community safe. Absentee voting lets you cast your vote from anywhere, and it allows you to take the time you need to make great decisions. This is why absentee voting is key to a healthy democracy. The benefits actually help combat voter suppression and increase ballot accessibility. All Alaskans deserve a voice. All Alaskans deserve an easy and accessible voting experience.

Deadlines
