Organization Represents 160 Tribes, 154 corporations, 10 consortiums
ANCHORAGE—The state’s largest Native organization voted Saturday to endorse the preservation of the open primary and ranked choice voting system during the Alaska Federation of Natives annual convention.
“Given the polarization in the country, Alaskans cannot afford to merely preserve the nonpartisan open primary and ranked choice voting model,” said Joe Nelson, AFN Co-Chair. “We have an obligation to lead a movement. Our current elections law will help restore confidence in our electoral system by creating a lane that allows politicians to become public servants–in service of all Alaskans.”
