Special Congressional Election Called in Alaska
Gov. Mike Dunleavy called a special election to replace U.S. Rep. Don Young, who died on March 18.
The special all-party primary election will be held on June 11. The top four candidates will advance to the August 16 general election.
The election marks the first time Alaska’s new ranked-choice voting system will be used, meaning voters will be able to rank their preferred candidates.
Additionally, August 16 is the open-primary election for the next two-year term, in which the top four candidates from this election will be able to move onto the November 8 general election.
Candidates are eligible to run in both elections.
