Recognized Political Parties In Alaska

A recognized political party is an organized group of voters whose candidate for governor received at least three percent of the total votes cast in the preceding general election or whose number of registered voters is equal to at least three percent of the total votes cast for governor.

If the race for governor was not on the ballot, the race for United States Senator is used to calculate the three percent. If neither the race for governor nor the race for United States Senator appeared on the ballot, the race for United States Representative is used to calculate for three percent.

The 2012 General Election included the United States Representative race. Therefore, political parties will maintain their status if their candidate received three percent of the total votes cast for United States Representative or if they have registered voters equal in number to at least three percent of the total votes cast for United States Representative (8,694 until the 2014 General Election).
