ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - The Municipality of Anchorage is already preparing for April’s mail-in election, by sending out address verification postcards to registered voters in Anchorage.
The Muni sent postcards to approximately 235,000 qualified registered voters, which should be received this week. The postcard asks voters to check their mailing address information to ensure their ballot package arrives at the correct mailing address. Ballot packages will not be forwarded by the postal service.
