UFA: vote while you fish

United Fishermen of Alaska is reminding commercial harvesters to be sure to register to vote or change their voter registration information before the July 22 deadline for the Aug. 21 statewide primary election.

The primary election ballot will include candidates for governor and lieutenant governor of Alaska, the U.S. House of Representatives, 40 state House and 10 state Senate candidates competing to become their party’s nominee in the Nov. 6 general election.

Registered voters will have two ballot choices.

Anyone voting in the Republican primary must be a registered Republican, nonpartisan or undeclared voter.

Any registered voter may vote the combined Democratic, Libertarian and Alaska Independence party ballot.

Sample ballots have been posted online at http://www.elections.alaska.gov/Core/Archive/SampleBallot_2018_Primary.php
