By Alaskans, For Alaskans
Ballot Measure 2 was drafted by a team of Alaskans passionate about improving state governance so we can all work together to make Alaska better. The initiative was signed by over 41,000 Alaskans from all 40 House Districts—far exceeding the minimum requirements for an initiative to be put on the ballot. This November, join us in supporting commonsense reforms to Alaska's elections that put the power back in the hands of voters, where it belongs.

The best thing about ranked choice voting is that it captures my preference from the top of the ticket to the bottom. Instead of forcing me to strategically choose a single candidate, I can rank candidates according to my preference and make sure my voice is more completely and clearly heard."
For decades the people of Alaska have been held hostage by closed primaries driven by political parties. For the sake of future generations, we need the ability to elect leaders who serve Alaskans and not their political party.
