You should vote today!



Election Day is finally here! After all of the months years of leading up to the 2012 Presidential Election, Americans will finally get a chance to cast a ballot for their candidate of choice.

But, what’s this? There are quite a few other issues on that ballot, and some that could have a much more direct effect on the day-to-day lives of Alaskans.

Have you checked to see who is running in your district? Have you looked into the information about the two ballot propositions? Do you know where your (potentially new) polling location is?


That’s okay, because we’ve got you covered.

To find all of this information, you can go to the Alaska Division of Elections, or you can follow these individual links:

  • If you don’t have your Voter ID card, and aren’t sure of your voting district, click here.
  • To find out where your polling location is, click here.
  • To see a list of candidates, click here.
  • To see a list of candidates, links to their websites and their social media pages, click on the guide we’ve put together here.

And finally, to see the results of the election as they come in, usually starting around 9:00 p.m., click here.

If you notice something at your polling location that seems wrong, or you feel you need to contact the Alaska Division of Elections, you can find contact information for each regional office here.

And if you’d like to look at another source for information about the candidates and ballot measures, Ballotpedia is worth checking out.

We at Alaska Commons want to encourage you to vote responsibly, but most of all, we encourage you to vote. It’s only our democracy at stake, after all.
