August 19 is Primary Election Day, and many will be heading to the polls to cast their vote for the General Election in November.
Voters can cast their ballot at their listed polling place, which is determined by the address used when registering to vote. A full list of polling places in the state and even a quick polling place search form are available on the State of Alaska Division of Elections site.
When arriving at a polling place, voters will be asked by election volunteers to present some form of identification. Voters may use any form of federal or state identification, such as driver's licenses and military IDs or passports, or present a recent paycheck or utility bill, or any other government document with the voter's name and address.
Only one measure is on the 2014 Primary Ballot, but voters will be able to choose between a wide range of candidates for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, U.S. Senator, U.S. Representative, State Senator, and State Representative.
Polls will open at 7 a.m., and will close at 8 p.m. Alaska time. First time voters can find information on the process here.
