Election Day in Alaska: What do you need to know?


November 4, 2014 has finally come, after months and months of elections ads and debates and, wait, no, more election ads. You may have been spending so much time hiding from the pollsters, robocalls, and doorknockers that you might have forgotten to find out where your voting location is. Or maybe what ballot propositions are being decided. Or possibly who is running in your Alaska House and Senate districts.

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.


Want to find out where your polling place is and who is running, but with more profanity? Go to Where’s My Fucking Polling Place?

Want to get up-to-the-minute elections results sent right to your phone? If you wanted to track one or more political races in Alaska, you can use the app by visiting the Alaska Election Watch website, selecting the races you’re interested in, and then enter the phone number that you’d like the text messages to be sent to. Then, all you have to do is wait for the election results to start rolling in after polls close on Tuesday.
