Anchorage residents who live in Assembly District 4 will have an opportunity to oust Assemblywoman Meg Zaletel during the Oct. 26 recall election.
To better facilitate voter turnout, the city has provided a link for area residents to determine whether they live in District 4 and are thus eligible to vote. The link allows residents to enter their physical address into a search field to determine their district location.
Qualified, registered voters will be mailed a ballot package on or about Oct. 5. Ballot packages were mailed to military and overseas voters on Sept. 17.
The city will provide seven secure drop boxes throughout District 4, and a vote center will be open daily for in-person voting at the Loussac Library from Monday, Oct. 18 through Election Day on Oct. 26.
All ballot envelopes must be returned to a secure drop box or the Anchorage vote center no later than 8 p.m. on election day, but the city encourages voters to return ballots as soon as possible to facilitate counting. Mailed ballot envelopes must be postmarked no later than Oct. 26.
