Voter Protection

Voter Registration

  • If you are an eligible, registered voter, you have the right to vote.
  • Registration and voting are both free to everybody.
  • Alaska has a cut-off for voter registration 30 days before each election.
  • If your voting address is out-of-date, you are still eligible to vote a full ballot.
  • Visit an early or absentee-in-person voting location to access ballots for every community in the state -- or if you visit a polling place in your neighborhood you can still vote a questioned ballot.

Voter access:

Vote-at-Home has not been adopted statewide so if you do not get the chance to vote securely at home via absentee, polling locations are still planning to be open.

Please keep in mind, that may change dependent on COVID-19 mandates.

Your local polling place is open 7 AM - 8 PM on Election Day. Bring an ID with you to vote. Acceptable forms of identification include:

  • Voter ID card
  • driver’s license
  • state or military ID
  • Any current of valid photo identification Passport
  • other government-issued document Hunting or fishing license
  • Current Utility bill
  • Government Paycheck or bank statement

Issues with Id?

If you do not have identification or your name does not appear on the precinct register, you must vote a questioned ballot. The vast majority of questioned ballots are verified and approved by the Division of Elections. Call the Division of Elections after the election to ensure that your vote was counted.

Need help getting to a polling station?

If you need a ride to the polls and you are located in Anchorage or Fairbanks, call 907-274-3662, and we will match you up with a volunteer driver If you cannot physically get to the polling place on voting day, it's ok for someone to bring you a ballot and then turn it in for you.

Poll worker can't find your name?

If a poll worker can not find you on the rolls in your local polling place, you are still eligible to vote. If you are in line by 8 PM on Election Day at any polling place in the state, you will be allowed to vote, even if it takes a while. Hang on, be patient, and exercise your civic duty.
