Anchorage Assembly Election April 2017

The Anchorage election for the Municipal Assembly (city council) is April 4, 2017.

The 2016 presidential election showed everyone the importance of voting and that begins with local elections for several reasons:
  • A few votes can determine who wins.
  • Lots of issues that effect people on a daily basis are decided locally.
  • Local elected officials get on-the-job training to eventually run for higher office
This page will index  the posts (latest posts first) I do for this election.

March 21

NOTE 1 Sample Ballots:  I've updated the pages for each district below to link to the sample ballots for each district.  Each district has different Assembly candidates, but everyone has the same two school board races, and the same propositions.  Except Rainbow, Indian, Bird Creek, Portage, and some spots near Girdwood outside of the Girdwood Valley Service Area - who have to decide whether they want to pay for police service.  And Girdwood voters have an annexation ballot.

If you want to find your sample ballot yourself, there's a map where you can find it here.  You click where you live and you get a little popup window that will take you to your ballot.

NOTE 2 EARLY VOTING INFO HERE  - but figure out who you're voting for before you go and read up on the propositions so you aren't surprised in the ballot box.
