The U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled that political parties have a Constitutional right to restrict who can vote in their primary elections. The Republican Party of Alaska has decided to limit who can vote in its primary. Therefore, there will be two different candidate ballots for the 2000 Primary Election in Alaska, and voters in that State will be asked to choose one.
The "Open" Ballot will have all candidates listed except Republicans. Anyone can select the Open Ballot.
The "Republican" Ballot will have only Republican candidates listed. If an Alaska voter is registered as either a Republican, Undeclared or Non-Partisan, he or she can select the Republican Ballot. The voter may- if necessary- change his or her party affiliation at the polling place.
|Alaska has been allocated only 1 Representative in Congress at large; therefore, the entire state consists of, in effect, only one statewide Congressional District.|
