On March 23, the Anchorage Assembly will hold a special meeting to establish a date on which the city will hold a special election to choose a 12th Assembly member.
Currently there are 11 Assembly members, but voters approved adding a 12th back in April of 2020.
The Assembly is scheduled to vote on a resolution that would establish June 21, 2022, as the date on which voters would select a candidate to fill the new Assembly Seat L in District 1.
If the Assembly approves the June 21 election date, filing for the new Assembly seat would open at 8 a.m. on May 3, and close at 5 p.m. on May 10, according to the proposed ordinance.
The upcoming meeting to establish a special election is on March 23, 6-8 p.m. at the Assembly Chambers (Loussac Library, 3600 Denali, Room 108).
