The April 3, 2018 Regular Municipal Election is the inaugural Vote by Mail election in Anchorage.
Anchorage will no longer operate traditional polling locations. Instead, qualified registered voters will be mailed a ballot package 21 days before Election Day. Voters will have the opportunity to study the ballot with trusted resources, mark their choices, sign the voter declaration, and return their ballot.
As Anchorage transitions, the Municipal Clerk’s Office reminds voters that, “Vote by Mail is as easy as 1-2-3!”
- Vote your ballot, filling in the ovals completely, place the ballot in the security envelope, then place both into the ballot return envelope.
- Sign the declaration on the back of the ballot return envelope.
- Return your ballot with a first class postage through the United States Postal Service or save postage and drop it at a secure ballot Drop Box or return it to an Accessible Vote Center.
