How Can A Felon in Alaska Restore Their Voting Rights
Unlike other states, where restoration of voting rights may include a specific appeal to an office in the state, the felon only needs to register again with the Division of Elections here: http://www.elections.alaska.gov/Core/restorationofvotingrights.php
If you are no longer serving a sentence and have been unconditionally discharged from supervision by the Department of Corrections, you can register to vote in Alaska.
The Division of Elections must receive proof of your unconditional discharge from the supervising entity. If you do not have a letter or discharge papers, please contact your probation or parole office to obtain one and submit it to the Division of Elections.
