ALASKA Voter ID Information

Registered Alaska voters must show an acceptable unexpired ID at the polls. If you are a registered voter but didn't bring your ID to the polling place, you may vote a "questioned ballot." In order for your ballot to be counted, you must sign a questioned ballot register and complete an envelope with your information. You will vote your ballot and it will be placed in the envelope.
