The Anchorage clerk’s office sent out a reminder on Sept. 13, notifying residents that they need to register to vote by Sept. 26 if they want to vote in the Oct. 26 recall election for Anchorage Assemblywoman Meg Zaletel.

Zaletel represents Assembly District 4, which means only residents who live in her district can vote on whether to remove her from office.

For information on how to register to vote, call the Anchorage voter hotline at 907-243-8683 or visit

Any US citizen and qualified Alaska resident at least 17 years and nine months old may register, but residents must be eighteen years old on Oct. 26, to vote in the in special recall election. A voter registration application is online. For more information about registering to vote, call the Alaska Division of Elections at 907-522-8683.

While Zaletel has endured intense criticism for many of her policy positions regarding homelessness, lockdowns and mandates, the actual recall petition claims that she is guilty of committing “misconduct in office” for ignoring a city mandate that limited indoor gatherings to 15 people or less.
