Registered Republican voters can choose their favorite presidential candidate tomorrow in the Chilkat Center lobby. Alaska is one of about a dozen states taking part in “Super Tuesday.” Voting in the Alaska GOP Presidential Preference Poll happens from 3-8 p.m.
Alaska has 28 Republican delegates, and candidates who receive at least 13 percent of the PPP vote will be awarded Alaska delegate votes.
Some districts will share polling facilities, while others may have more than one site. According to the Alaska Republican Party website, if there is no place to vote in your town it’s because there were no volunteers to run a PPP there. That’s the case in Skagway.
However, on March 26 starting at 10 a.m., registered Democrats in Skagway will have a chance to select their preferred candidate at the Skagway School. Haines has no polling place for the Democratic caucus.
Republic presidential candidates are down to Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Marco Rubio and Donald Trump. Democratic presidential candidates are Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
