Ranked Choice: Special Election Edition
This special election is our first opportunity to see Alaska’s ranked choice voting system in action. Here’s how it will work:
On one side of the ballot, voters will see information and candidates for the regular primary election for the Governor and Lieutenant Governor’s race, U.S. Senator and U.S. Representative and State Senators and Representatives. For each seat, select ONE candidate (“Pick One Primary”). Though the primary for the full term for U.S. Representative has many candidates, three candidates (Nick Begich, Sarah Palin and Mary Peltola) that appear on this side will also appear on the back for the special election, as all three candidates are running for both the regular term, which begins in January 2023, and the special election, which begins in September. On the front side, only select one of these candidates – your top choice.
On the back side of the ballot, you will find their names as candidates for the special election general. There, rank the candidates in order of your preference.
