Alaska Student Voter Info

Alaska defines voter residency as the place where your “habitation is fixed, and to which, whenever absent, [you have] the intention to return.” Alaska has a gain-or-loss provision for students with regards to residency, meaning a college student does not automatically gain or lose residency solely by entering or leaving the state to attend college. In Alaska, your “present intention to establish a permanent dwelling” at your school address is enough for you to establish residency. Alaska law puts considerable weight on where you choose to register to vote, and if you have the intent to remain for some period of time at your school address, you should be entitled to register and vote at that address.

Alaska Ex-Offender Voter Info

Individuals convicted of a felony are ineligible to vote while incarcerated, on parole, or on probation. Voting rights are automatically restored upon completion of all supervised release. Ex-offenders should re-register to vote.
