A Nonpartisan Top 4 Primary is used to determine the top four getters that will advance tot he General Election, regardless of political affiliation. In accordance with Alaska's laws, a primary election candidate does not have to be a member of a political party or a political group, to run for office. If a candidate is registered as affiliated with a political party or group, it does not imply the candidate is nominated by, endorsed by, approved of, or associated with that particular party or group.
- A registered voter may vote for one candidate per race regardless of voter’s registered political affiliation, including nonpartisan and undeclared.
- There is no limit as to how many candidates can file for the primary election for any given candidate race.
Any registered voter in Alaska may apply for an absentee ballot and vote by mail.
If you are voting in person in Alaska, you must present one of the following forms of ID when you vote:
- Driver’s license or state ID
- Voter ID Card
- Birth Certificate

- Any valid photo ID
- A current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check, or other document issued by the government with the name and current address of the voter.
An election official may waive the ID requirement if an Election Day official can vouch for your identity.
