More choice, more voice, and more power to voters. We all want a brighter future for Alaska. Our new “Alaska Style Elections” will change how we elect our leaders and can encourage politicians — regardless of party — to work together on solutions that represent the will of the people. After all, elections are for voters, not politicians.
Alaskans for Better Elections
We are in a period of political transformation. Neither of the two major parties has a handle on how to move our state forward, and there’s great uncertainty and anxiety about what comes next. Our politics have become hyper-partisan with two sides fighting for power rather than working on solutions. At the same time, our political system requires broad bipartisan support by design. We need an election system that encourages politicians to work for voters — not parties.
Elections are about accountability. If there’s no competition, there’s no accountability. But the way we vote now limits our choices and fails to hold politicians accountable to the communities they represent. We need a better way to elect candidates who will represent the will of the people. The best ideas should decide who wins, not the biggest bank account or outdated election rules that favor party bosses and special interests over voters.
We are a nonpartisan, not for profit group of Alaskans dedicated to educating voters about the election system changes passed in ballot measure two in November 2020. Those changes include enhanced campaign financing disclosure requirements, creation of a top-four primary open to all Alaska voters, and empowering them to rank each candidate in order of their preference in the general election. Together, these reforms were designed to take back the power of our elections.
Protects the integrity and fairness of our elections by shining a light on secret “Dark Money” spending on campaigns.
Permanently opens Alaska's primaries to the more than 60% of Alaska's registered voters who don't want to have to join a particular political party to have their voices heard.
