Recognized Political Parties In Alaska

  • A recognized political party is an organized group of voters whose candidate for governor received at least three percent of the total votes cast in the preceding general election or whose number of registered voters is equal to at least three percent of the total votes cast for governor.

  • If the race for governor was not on the ballot, the race for United States Senator is used to calculate the three percent. If neither the race for governor nor the race for United States Senator appeared on the ballot, the race for United States Representative is used to calculate for three percent.

  • The 2016 General Election did not include the gubernatorial race. Therefore, political parties will maintain their status if their candidate received three percent of the total votes cast for U.S. Senator or if they have registered voters equal in number to at least three percent of the total votes cast for U.S. Senator (9343 until the 2018 General Election).
