Absentee voting places are open across the state of Alaska now, and will be through Primary Election Day on Aug. 21.
Alaska election law allows for a quartet of ways to vote absentee, including in-person, by mail, by fax or electronically, or through a personal representative.
This year Alaskans will vote on half the state’s senators, all the state house members, our governor and his lieutenant, and for U.S. House.
As usual, the Republican ballot is closed, and may only be requested by registered Republicans, nonpartisans or undeclared; while the Open ballot includes Democrats, Alaska Libertarians, and Alaskan Independence candidates and can be voted by any registered voter.
Ballots for House Districts 29 through 32 are available at Kenai City Hall from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays through Aug. 20, and of course is the polling place on Aug. 21, and will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Ballots for the same House Districts 29, 30, 31, and 32 are available at the Peninsula Center Mall polling place from 10 a.m to 5 p.m. weekdays this week and next.
