How AK’s open House primary could send four conservatives to the RCV general

With low Democratic primary turnout in Alaska, progressives risk fragmenting their small voting pool — crowding them out of the RCV general election entirely.


Dive into Alaska’s new House and Senate districts drawn by the Alaska Redistricting Board. Senate districts are still subject to lawsuit, which may or may not resolve by the June 1st filing deadline for state candidates. See how the new districts compare to the old, demographic info, district partisanship, and the filing status of incumbents and challengers. Districts are shaded by the 2020 presidential margin.

Anchorage completed its reapportionment of their Assembly districts in March of 2022. The Anchorage Assembly adopted a new map originally drawn by Denny Wells and submitted by former Southside assemblyman John Weddleton, and then amended by myself (Robert Hockema) and submitted by Downtown Assemblyman Chris Constant. See what incumbents occupy each seat, the percentage they won their last election by, and a comparison of the 2016-2020 composite district D/R average between the last map and the new map. Districts are shaded by the district’s 2016-2020 composite average.
