SLAY THE DRAGON follows everyday people, outraged by what they see as an attack on the core democratic principle that every person’s vote should count equally. This election year, we’re joining together with grassroots partners to put an end to gerrymandering. Because this issue impacts each state differently, we’ve created a map to help you navigate how gerrymandering affects your state and community. SLAY THE DRAGON arrives on demand April 3.

Alaska

Process

Alaska's state legislative district lines are drawn by the state's Redistricting Board, an independent commission with members appointed by the Governor, the majority leaders in each chamber of the Legislature, and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Alaska has only one at-large congressional district.

In addition to the federal requirements of one person, one vote and the Voting Rights Act, Alaska law requires that state legislative districts be compact, contiguous, preserve political subdivisions, and preserve communities of interest.

Issues

Alaska's state legislative maps do not score poorly on the Princeton Gerrymandering Project's tests of partisan unfairness.

Potential issues are a lack of representation for indigenous Alaskans and communities of interest.

Actions

Participate in the Commission's public comment process.

  • Obtain Alaska redistricting data from OpenPrecincts.

  • Use software tools such as Dave's Redistricting App and Districtr to draw district maps showing either (a) what a fair map would look like, or (b) where the community you believe should be better represented is located.

  • Submit these maps to the Commission as a public comment.
