Dear Neighbors,

Elections represent the voice of the people and the right to vote is essential to our shared democracy. That sounds good but there is a simple catch that can stop a person from voting. Not being registered to vote.

Sunday is the deadline to register to vote in Alaska if you want to vote in the upcoming primary election on August 16. Below is information on how to register to vote, including a link to an online portal run by the Alaska Division of Elections.

Our representative democracy is fueled by the feedback of the people through regular elections at every level of government. Your vote is your voice so make sure your voice is heard by registering to vote today.

I’m here for you. I welcome your input and ideas. Call my office at (907) 465-2095 or send an email to

Warm regards,
