Understanding the Ballot Review
Tuesday, March 16th, 6:30 - 7:30 pm

Hosted by the League of Women Voters of Anchorage
For almost 30 years, the Anchorage League of Women Voters has been working with the Municipality of Anchorage to provide voters with an easy to understand brochure regarding local election information. The current brochure is called the Ballot Review and it is sent to every municipal household prior to the municipal election. Are you curious how the Ballot Review began, how it is currently developed, what information is included, and when it is published?
