Sen. Dan Sullivan, Rep. Don Young, Gov. Mike Dunleavy and others are scheduled to be on hand for the May 6 “Get out the Vote” rally in Eagle River. The aim is to inspire area residents to turn in their ballots to elect Dave Bronson as the next mayor of Anchorage.
Bronson is currently in a runoff election against hard-leftist Forrest Dunbar.
Since neither man was able to win 45% of the vote in the recent April election, a two-way run off is underway to decide the winner. Voters have until May 11 to turn in their ballots.
The election is expected to come down to the wire. In the initial April 6 election, Bronson earned 24,567 votes (33%) to Dunbar’s 23,054 votes (31%).
Now that the other 13 candidates have been eliminated from the field, the race could come down to a difference of a few hundred votes.
The upcoming rally kicks off at 5 p.m. at the Eagle River Lions Club (18344 Eagle River Road).

Voters can drop their ballots off at drop boxes or they can vote in-person at three separate vote centers (Anchorage City Hall, Eagle River Town Center, or the Loussac Library).
