Don’t Forget to Vote By April 3!

Community Events

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Tomorrow, Tuesday, April 3rd is the deadline to vote in the Anchorage Municipal Election. Traditional polling locations are no longer an option for voting on Election Day, so remember to send in your ballot!


Don’t Forget to Vote by April 3!

Everyone who was registered to vote in Anchorage by March 4th should have received a ballot in the mail. If you have not received a ballot, or if yours was lost or destroyed, you can go to an Accessible Vote Center, which you can locate here: 2018 Election Secure Drop Boxes and Accessible Vote Centers Interactive Map.


Send in your ballot using one of three methods:

  1. U.S. Postal Service - Mail your ballot return envelope using first-class postage. Make sure it’s postmarked before or on Election Day, April 3, 2018.  Remember to remove your "I Voted" sticker, and remove the tab at the top of your ballot so it isn't too heavy for one stamp.
  2. Secure Ballot Drop Box - Place your ballot return envelope in a Secure Ballot Drop Box by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day, April 3, 2018. Voters in line at the Secure Drop Box locations by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day will be allowed to drop off their ballots.  To find a Secure Drop Box location and hours near you, use the Secure Ballot Drop Box Location Interactive Map. This is a great option for people who don't have stamps, or are worried about sending their ballots in the mail.
  3. Accessible Vote Center - Take your ballot return envelope to an Accessible Vote Center.  Voters in line at Accessible Vote Centers by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day will be allowed to vote or drop off their ballots. To find an Accessible Vote Center location and hours near you, use the Accessible Vote Center Location Interactive Map. Remember to bring whatever identification you normally bring to the polls if you choose this option.

If you have questions or concerns about voting in this year's elections please call (907) 243-VOTE (8683) or visit an Accessible Vote Center. Frequently asked questions and answers can be found here.
