The Alaska Division of Elections does not, however, notify voters when their ballot has been opened and counted. This year, Alaskans anticipate delays due to the record number of absentee ballots that have been cast. The Division of Elections may notify voters if their ballot was rejected via letter in the months following the election. 

Alaskans in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, Nome and Wasilla may vote in person between October 19 and October 29 if they want to ensure their ballot is counted on November 3, 2020. All other absentee ballots will be counted 7 days following the last day to vote (November 10).
