What's new with voting in Alaska in 2022?

Starting in 2022, Alaskans are voting in new ways. For state and federal elections we will now have a nonpartisan primary to choose which candidates move on to the general election and ranked choice voting in the general election. The nonpartisan primary lets you choose one candidate regardless of their political party, to move on to the general election. Ranked choice voting lets you rank the candidates in order of preference instead of voting for just one candidate. We've put together these videos walking you through what it's like to vote in these new ways.
