Early voting under way in Alaska

Posted: October 22, 2012 - 8:37pm  |  Updated: October 22, 2012 - 8:40pm

JUNEAU (AP) — Early voting in Alaska has begun for next month’s general election, and voters now can receive and return their ballots electronically.

Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell’s office says in a news release that the online ballot transmission system launched last month for military and overseas voters. Voters not in that group were able to begin using the system on Monday.

The system allows Alaska voters to request ballots by e-mail or fax, and receive ballots electronically within 48 hours. Treadwell’s office says that voters can then return their ballot via a secure web-based system, mail or fax.

An application for online ballot delivery can be found through the state Division of Elections website.

A direct link to the application can be found at:

I haven't voted yet

My vote will cast yours out, but we will both have voted and you and SPW will be able to converse with me afterwards.
Speaking of SPW, where has he been, is he on a Time Out for being nasty like i was for a week?
Remember when you had your own special revival giving praise to everything because i was on a Time Out, did that happen to him too and when will you get your due TO?

Thanks for sharing.

Had a Friend share with me that She made the Time to VOTE Early yesterday.

Binkley Street,Soldotna to Park Ave between the Boro Admin Bldg & the Sledding Hill behind Soldotna Ele School
Brown Portable Bldg on the left (North) side of Park Ave.
Several White & Red Signs for directions.

She shared that You will need your Voter I D Card, Social Security Number & Alaska State Drivers License to participate in this Early Voting.

Now this Warmed My Heart: She stated there was a actual
Waiting Line & many Residents were Waiting In Line to
Participate in Democracy & VOTE ! That's the Way It Should Be !
SPW "Airborne"

Howdy SPW Glad your OK

I see where the United Nations is monitoring polling places here in America again and really stepping up observers in GOP areas but don't want anything to do with helping the Black Panthers at Donkey voting boths.
Can ya believe it Europeans from the UNION ONE here in America regulating voting and paid for by Acorn subsidararies to boot.
Texas said don't mess with Texas or your going to jail to these UNION ONE advocates.
Seriously SPW glad your OK and not grounded from sharing info.
13 Days till we can all VOTE, OR NOT VOTE & go back to being Friendly Neighbors, as we continue to watch OUR Nation go off that Fiscal Economic cliff to UNION ONE MEMBERSHIP STATUS.

Voted on the first day

I cast my ballot on Monday afternoon at the KPB risk mgr office. I must have hit a lull as there was only 1 other voter on site, but the workers said the turnout on day 1 had been record breaking up to that point.

Just want to correct some more mis-info by the spw fella...

The only thing you need to vote is your voter ID card OR your driver's license OR your state ID card. You do NOT need your SSN. You only need one form of ID and that little voter ID card with no picture or anything else to prove you are who you say you are is all it takes.

The only exception to this is for those who have never voted before or those who have moved and reside in a new voting district.
