U.S. Senate

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R) is one of four contenders who emerged from the state’s all-party primary in August. Her closest challenger is Kelly Tshibaka (R), a former commissioner in the Alaska Department of Administration who has Donald Trump’s nod. Alaska is for the first time using ranked-choice voting, which means we’re unlikely to know the results on Nov. 8. 

Ranked-choice voting, along with an all-party primary, is thought to favor Murkowski, who has bucked the GOP on several occasions and voted to convict Trump in his second impeachment trial related to the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.

If no candidate receives more than 50 percent of first choice votes, the state will proceed with calculating the ranked choice results. Additional rounds of counting will not be released until Nov. 23.

U.S. House

Over the summer, Democrat Mary Peltola, the House’s first Alaska Native lawmaker, won the ranked-choice special election in Alaska’s single congressional district. She replaced the late Rep. Don Young (R) for the remainder of his term. In doing so, she defeated Republicans Sarah Palin and Nick Begich, who remain in the November race for a full term in the next Congress. The November race for this seat is also a ranked-choice election, which could again favor Peltola if Republicans split their vote and enough voters who choose Begich as their No. 1 pick end up selecting Peltola as their second option.

If no candidate receives more than 50 percent of first choice votes, the state will proceed with calculating the ranked choice results. Additional rounds of counting will not be released until Nov. 23.
