The Municipal Clerk’s Office announces that approximately 198,000 ballot packages are being mailed out today, March 13, 2018 to qualified registered voters.
Voters can anticipate receiving their ballot package in the mail by Monday, March 19, 2018.
If a voter loses, damages, or does not receive a ballot package in the mail, the voter is asked to call the Voter Hotline at (907)243-VOTE(8683) to request a replacement ballot package. The Voter Hotline hours of operation are Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
If the request for a replacement ballot package is made after March 27, the voter will be asked to visit an Accessible Vote Center (AVC) to request a replacement ballot package. AVCs open on Monday, March 26, 2018. The AVC hours and locations are listed at muni.org/elections/AVC.
Ballot package contents include the following:
- Official ballot
- Voter Instructions
- Security envelope (which protects voter privacy)
- Ballot return envelope
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 first class postage 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.
