More than 43,000 Anchorage residents have already voted -- What to know if you haven't

By  | 

ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - The Municipal Clerk's Office reports that 43,055 total ballot envelopes have been received by MOA Elections, as of last Friday. And while the deadline to vote approaches, you still have until 8 p.m. Tuesday to cast your ballot.

If you have not voted yet and you are feeling a bit overwhelmed by what each measure means, check out KTUU's interactive chart that breaks down the 12 different propositions.

The interactive chart will allow you to hover over each proposition, which will display a list of information, including a description summary of the proposal, the estimated annual cost to the taxpayer, and what will happen if you vote 'yes' or vote 'no.'

As of March 30, the Municipal Clerk's Office says that voter turnout is at 87.2 percent of the 2017 Regular Municipal Election. However, it is at 74.8 percent of the 2015 Regular Municipal Election, which was Anchorage's last mayoral election.

To submit your ballot by mail, you must have it postmarked by election day – April 3. Election officials suggest if you're sending your ballot by mail on Tuesday, you should get the postal worker to hand cancel it.

Otherwise, you can save postage by either using a secure drop box, or by visiting one of five Accessible Vote Centers to vote in person.
