After Ballot Measure 1 passed last November, 2018 will be the first year all eligible Alaskans will be automatically registered to vote when they apply for their PFD.
The initiative was first proposed as a way to substantially increase voter registration in the state. According to the Alaska Permanent Fund Division, around 672,000 Alaskans applied for PFDs last year. That’s about 150,000 more than the number of registered voters as of Dec. 3, according to the most recent data from the Division of Elections.
