    Note: The Republican Moderate Party existed this time last year–it no longer exists.

    Note -we are not approaching zero. We are simply taking off. These just represent the first official ACP registrants EVER! We could not be more pleased. Our numbers are sure to grow, especially once the official voter registration forms are revised to include the ACP as a listed choice. Thanks for the mention though!

    The percentage is approaching zero, yes. That’s not a sleight, it’s a fact.

    Dear Mr. Myers,

    The voter registration form changes were submitted on March 29 and the Department of Justice has 60 days to review that submission. We will let you know when we hear from them. Upon preclearance from the DOJ, the Division of Elections will print new forms and destroy the old forms. New forms will be available in the Regional Election Offices, on the internet, and at Division of Motor Vehicles. In the meantime, voters who wish to be registered under the Alaska Constitution Party may select the “other” category and write in the group’s name on the old form.

    Your candidates may begin collecting petition signatures for the 2012 races at any time. Those forms are located at: http://www.elections.alaska.gov/ci_pg_fof.php. Obviously the districts might change with the current redistricting situation, and any candidates that have filed will be notified of district boundary changes after they become final. This could mean signatures obtained in a current district may be invalid in a new district. Potential candidates may want to wait until the redistricting plan is final before gathering signatures.

    Nomination forms are due June 1, 2012 with completed petitions being filed at any time before the August Primary deadline with the exception of the Presidential Independent candidate forms, which can be filed as early as January 1, 2012.

    Please let me know if you need further information.
