Ballot Measure 2 was passed in November 2020 and included three commonsense election reforms to reduce partisanship and elect leadership committed to moving Alaska forward. It ends the secret influence of dark money, creates a single unified primary open to all voters, and empowers voters in the general election to rank candidates in order of preference. These simple, nonpartisan updates to how we choose our leaders will return the power of elections to its rightful place — with the voters.
Ranked Choice Voting
Our elected leaders should represent the will of the people. Too often, though, partisan gridlock, low turnout, and increased polarization result in a dysfunctional government incapable of — or unwilling to — address the issues that matter most to voters. Empowering voters to rank candidates in the general election ensures more candidates win office with the support of a majority of Alaskans. It gives voters more voice in their representation and more choice in the voting booth. Ranked choice voting is a simple change with a big impact.
