For Anchorage voters who haven’t yet voted, there’s still time, but not much.

In addition to dropping a ballot off via mail or a drop box (no later than April 4), voters can also vote in-person at three designated centers around the municipality.

As of March 31, only 28,428 ballots have been received by the city elections center, which is on pace to be one of the lowest voter turnouts in the history of Anchorage. Given the dismal participation level, each vote cast actually has far greater impact on the final results.

Those who opt to return ballot though the mail on either Monday, April 3 or Tuesday, April 4, should ask a postal worker to “hand cancel” or place a postmark on the envelope to make sure their vote counts.

The more traditionally minded can visit an Anchorage Vote Center to vote in person if they lost, damaged, didn’t receive a mailed ballot, or simply prefer the old-fashioned way. These voters must present proper identification to cast a ballot. The vote centers will be open until 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. over the weekend, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on April 3 and 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on April 4 election day. The three in-person centers are located at: City Hall (632 West 6th Avenue, Room #105), Eagle River Town Center (12001 Business Boulevard, Community Room #170) and the Loussac Library (3600 Denali Street, 1st Floor).

Voters who are unable to vote via mail or can’t vote in person may cast a ballot by fax or email.  Call the Voter Hotline – (907) 243-8683 – to request an application to vote by fax or email, and return the ballot no later than 5 p.m. on Monday, April 3.

Elderly, disabled, hospitalized or sick residents may call the voter hotline to request a Special Needs Ballot. An election official will then bring a ballot to the voter’s residence and allow them to vote in privacy, before returning the ballot to the Election Center for counting.

There are 18 ballot drop boxes throughout the city which are open 24/7 until 8 p.m. on election day, April 4. Voters in line at a drop box by 8 p.m. on election day will be allowed to drop off their ballots. To find out where drop boxes are located, either call the voter hotline or search this online map (

    People can drop off their ballots at Mountain Ciry Church. Why isn’t it shown on the website? One can only imagine. It’s a secure box.

  • Neil DeWitt says:

    Well the coruptsystem is at work already. a friend was called at 11:57 a.m. Saturday morning to be told their ballot has been pulled out because their signature doesn’t match up. that’s BULL. I stood right their and watched them sign. It’s more democratic oversize. This person voted for a republican and so their ballot won’t be counted! Great system we have in Anchorage. HA, HA. HA.

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    Thank you for putting this information out there Joel. I pray that the conservatives and humanity-loving people in Anchorage have not given up. I pray that they will still be getting involved by submitting their votes because every vote counts in saving Anchorage, saving Alaska, saving humanity.

    Ever listen to Glenn Beck? Here is a fantastic video that Glenn put out recently. The message is good. Please listen to it.

    • DaveMaxwell says:

      Yup he’s admitting that this country has deteriorated beyond repair and in agreement with him the only route out of this mess both state and country is repentance and humbly seeking Gods favor again! We the people can and must do this! Our leaders are way to arrogant and ignorant to even suggest that they lead such a movement, so therefore in their absence I just did in response to Glenn Becks statements!!!

  • Therese Syren says:

    Yes, Thank you Joel! Many will vote to Crucify Him; let’s counter that cry! Prayer and sacrifice is certainly most important, but part of that sacrifice is fulfilling our civic duty to vote, at the very least!
