PFD Automatic Voter Registration – Effective 3/1/2017
On November 8, 2016, Alaska voters approved Ballot Measure 1 (15PFVR) which will automatically register eligible individuals to vote when they apply for a Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD), unless they opt-out. With the passage of Ballot Measure 1, the division is required to send a notice to voters whose address on their PFD application is different than their voter record address, or to applicants who are not currently registered to vote. This mailer will notify them that the information on their PFD application will be used to update their voter registration or register them unless they ‘opt-out’ within 30 days.
The PFD Automatic Voter Registration law became effective on March 1, 2017. As the Division of Elections seeks to implement the law, it is in the process of developing an ‘Alaska PFD Automatic Voter Registration Manual’. The purpose of this manual is to describe the new process for voter registration and voter updates through the PFD Division and the Division of Elections. This process will increase voter access consistent with all state and federal laws, including the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA).
For 2017, the opt-out and address change mailer will be sent to Alaskans who applied for their PFD from March 1, 2017 (effective date) to March 31, 2017.
