More than 150,000 Anchorage ballots still haven’t been returned

    More than a 150,000 Anchorage voters have yet to return their mail-in ballots for the municipal election which ends on April 7.

    The city sent 215,000 ballots to registered voters on March 17. As of Monday, April 6, just over 50,000 ballots had been returned.

    This is an election which could reshape the Assembly and school board by replacing left-leaning members with candidates who are pro-life, pro-family and willing to defend religious liberties and parental rights.

    The Alaska Watchman has endorsed the following candidates based on their support of traditional family values in the public square.


    • Jamie Allard – Seat C
    • Nick Danger – Seat E
    • Christine Hill – Seat G
    • Monty Dyson – Seat I
    • Rick Costillo – Seat K


    • Dave Donley – Seat C
    • John (JC) Cates – Seat D
