Anchorage Assembly to consider updating rules for observers in local elections

The Anchorage Assembly is getting ready to vote on a set of proposed code changes to the city’s election laws. It’s something the Assembly does every year, after a review of the election code, to clarify and improve the laws and address any new issues. This year’s changes, under consideration at Tuesday’s Assembly meeting, include requiring election observers to complete a city-provided training and tour of the election center. The changes would also enshrine in code that observers must follow the Election Observer’s Handbook and that the municipal clerk, with “good cause,” can limit the number of observers.
