Voters can also apply for a ballot to be sent electronically, through fax or online. The deadline to receive an absentee ballot application for electronic submission is Monday, Nov. 5 by 5 p.m.
“Alaska voters have a variety of convenient options to cast a ballot and have their voice heard,” said State Elections Director Josie Bahnke. “We encourage all eligible voters to participate in the manner that works best for them.”
