In November 2021, the Anchorage Assembly began the reapportionment process with the passage of AR 2021-382 which declares the Assembly malapportioned.
Anchorage Reapportionment Committee
Led by a Reapportionment Committee, the process is charged with reviewing the State final redistricting plan, taking public input, and developing proposed maps for the Anchorage Assembly to consider for adoption to realign the boundaries of the six Assembly election districts to ensure fair and equal representation.
This reapportionment will include a new 12th Assembly seat that was approved by Municipality of Anchorage voters in 2020.
Over the next few months, preliminary plans and maps will be shared with the public for feedback. The committee plans to host two town halls in January 2022 to share plans and gather community input. The committee also issued a proposed timeline. Dates may change, so visit the Reapportionment Committee webpage for updates.
