Delegate Selection Plan from the Alaska Democrats.
22 January 2024: Presidential candidate filing deadline.
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 all candidates are above the 15% threshold in the district or in statewide, as applicable, then the process is complete. If any candidate is under the 15% threshold, the candidate with the fewest votes 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.
14 of 19 delegates to the Democratic National Convention are pledged to presidential contenders in proportion to the percentage of support each candidate receives in the party-run primary.
Saturday 13 April 2024 (presumably): Alaska Precinct / House District Caucuses. The Tier 1 caucuses convene to elect delegates to the State Convention.
