The Anchorage Municipal Clerk’s Office announces mailing of the Address Verification Postcard to 208,000 qualified registered voters in the municipality. Anchorage voters should receive their postcard delivered by the United States Postal Service this week.
The Postcard requests voters to review their current mailing address information, which is listed on the mailer. Current information helps make sure a voter will receive their ballot package at the correct mailing address.
It is important to have accurate voter registration information on file for the April Regular Municipal Election because ballot packages that are undeliverable will not be forwarded by the United States Postal Service.
If a voter needs to update their information, they may do so at the State of Alaska’s Online Voter Registration website:https://voterregistration.alaska.gov/
The Anchorage Regular Municipal Election is April 3, 2018 and is the inaugural election of Vote by Mail.
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.
The Address Verification Postcard is the second of two Vote by Mail outreach mailings by the Municipal Clerk’s Office.
The mailers are part of a larger education and outreach effort to inform the community that Anchorage is now voting by mail. The April 3, 2018 Regular Municipal Election marks the first time the Clerk’s Office is establishing one-on-one contact with all registered voters in Anchorage.
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 stamp through the United States Postal Service or save postage and drop it at a secure drop box or return it to an accessible vote center.
