Anchorage Election Field Set


Today at 5 PM was the deadline for candidates filed to run for local office to drop out and have their names taken off the ballot.

Yesterday, two insignificant assembly candidates dropped out, Kevin Smestad in East Anchorage and Stephany Jeffers in Chugiak/Eagle River.

Today saw only one more leave, Patrick Donnelly, also in the Chugiak/Eagle River assembly race.

That leaves plenty of interesting races including for the April ballot including a two-conservative race in Chugiak/Eagle River, a two liberal race Downtown, head-to-head Republican challengers to left-of-center incumbents in West Anchorage and East Anchorage and a multi-candidate melee in Midtown.

It should be an interesting election cycle.

Here are the major candidates for each race. Note that we did not list all candidates
