Official Election Pamphlet

Prior to each General Election, the Official Election Pamphlet (OEP) is distributed to all registered households in Alaska. The pamphlet contains information about candidates and issues appearing on the ballot. Candidates and recognized political parties must pay to appear in the OEP. The information submitted by candidates will be posted to the Division of Elections website prior to an election at which the candidate's name appears on the ballot.

Please note, that due to the Toyukak Settlement, candidate information for translation into the Alaskan Native languages, Spanish, and Tagalog must be received thirty days before the statutory deadline.

The OEP is prepared following the guidelines outlined in Alaska Statutes 15.58.010 - 15.58.090.
