As drafted, SB 39, would create greater barriers for Alaskans engaging in the democratic process. The bill, introduced by Senator Mike Shower, would eliminate the state’s Automatic Voter Registration system, criminalize the possession of ballots in a wide variety of circumstances, prohibit certain municipalities from voting by mail, and erect other barriers to the ballot.

The ACLU of Alaska opposes SB 39.
