1 December 2023: DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee found this plan to be in full compliance.

Party-Run Primary from the Alaska Democrats.


   

Participation in ALASKA's delegate selection process is open to registered Democrats. Alaska registers voters by party. Voters who are not registered as Democrats can change their registration with the Division of Elections or by submitting the appropriate registration forms with their ballot.

Saturday 6 April 2024: Party-Run Primary. Voter Eligibility: Closed Primary. Hours end at 3:00p AKDT (2300 UTC). The "first determining step" of Alaska's delegate selection process is a party-run primary. Ballots may be cast electronically, by FAX, or by mail and must be returned no later than 3p on 6 April. All registered Democrats are mailed a ballot on 13 February. Uncommitted shall appear on the ballot. Write-ins are not allowed.

The party will use a ranked choice ballot. Voters rank up to 5 candidates in order of preference. If any candidate is under the 15% threshold on the first round, that candidate is eliminated and the votes for that candidate are applied the voter's next choice. The process continues until the remaining candidates have at least 15% of the vote. If no candidate reaches the 15% threshold, the threshold will be half the percentage of the votes received by the front-runner.
