Alaska Voters

Apart from conservative Mayor Dave Bronson, left-wing politicians are in firm control of Anchorage’s School Board and Assembly.

Up until April 2, residents have the opportunity to cast mail-in ballots to shape or begin to alter Anchorage’s political landscape. Voters will choose a mayor as well as three school board members.

Alaska Family Action, a pro-life and pro-family advocacy group, has published its “Values Voter Guide,” to help residents identify candidates which best share their biblically-informed beliefs and convictions.

While ballots were sent out earlier this month, only 16,984 out of 235,000 registered voters have cast a ballot, as of March 22. That’s about 7% of voters with less than two weeks left to vote. There are multiple options for those who still wish to participate, including mailing ballots through the post office, dropping ballots off at one of multiple secure, drop boxes located around town, going to one of three Anchorage Vote Centers or even emailing ballots.

The Value Voters Guide clearly identifies where candidates stand on a wide range of issues, including public funding of abortion, religious freedom, bathroom and locker room policies, protection of women’s sports, library book controversies, sanctuary cities, abortion activism in schools, parental rights in education, sex education, LGBTQ gender ideology in schools and more.

  • John says:

    A truly important guide for those who can’t think for themselves.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      The conservative side puts out information with candidate responses to questions and that is not okay. HOWEVER, it is okay for outside dark money to infuse itself in the democratic races everywhere – is this okay in your book? Must Read Alaska had an article posted on March 19, 2024 about dark money. Thank you to Alaska Family Action for doing this research and sharing the information. Praying that Anchorage folks get those ballots turned in on time.

  • Coliseum in the Snow says:

    1 day
    1 vote
    Signature verification by a personal witness, NOT on the envelope that contains my ballot

  • Kathy Doran says:

    How valuable is a voter’s guide if the only candidates who participate are the candidates favored by the guide’s authors?

    • Steven Chappell says:

      If Candidates don’t want to respond it should tell you how they would respond to you when called out. Not responding to questions shows they do not care what you think only what they command you to think

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Kathy, re-read your comment AND THEN go ask your favored candidates why they chose not to participate in the questionnaire. When I see all of these candidates who do not care to participate in educating the voters, I, also, see this as candidates who don’t care what the voters think.

  • Richard Eide says:

    There are many traditional family value voters who simply don’t know which candidates share their values. NOW… you know!

  • Carmen says:

    This information is crucial for Anchorage voters to make informed decisions and Alaska Watchman is my source for the news that is not provided by the local TV or ADN media outlets. Thank you Joel Davidson and your staff for quality journalism.
