What if I'm in a remote location and want to make sure my Alaska absentee ballot gets delivered in time
For Alaska voters who are located in areas where mail service may be slow (for example, remote areas of Alaska), Alaska provides a special advance ballot to allow additional time to cast a ballot. This is a blank ballot with spaces for the voter to write in the names of candidates and/or issues. This ballot is mailed beginning 60 days through 28 days before Election Day. In addition to the special advance ballot, voters are mailed the official ballot beginning approximately three weeks before Election Day. Voters are encouraged to vote and return both ballots. If both ballots are returned in time, only the official ballot will be counted. You can request a special advance ballot by checking the appropriate box on your Alaska Absentee Ballot Application.
