One of the most asked questions I have gotten since I became the candidate for Lt Governor is, “What is the primary election?” It is extremely important to vote in the primary election because this is when we choose who will be on the general election ballot. The Primary Election is on Aug 21, 2018. The General Election is on Nov 6, 2018.
1. Determine if your candidate of choice is a Republican, Democrat, Nonpartisan, Libertarian, etc.
2. Be sure your party affiliation allows you to vote for your candidate of choice.
3. You have until 30 days prior to the election to change your affiliation.

Options include on-line, paper or in person.
4. Currently there are three primary ballot options:
— Alaska Republican Party Candidates: Republican, Nonpartisan or Undeclared may vote.
— Alaska Democratic, Libertarian & Independence Party Candidates: any registered voter.
— Ballot Measures: any registered voter.
