Discussion about ballot Proposition # 2 :
Alaska Ballot Measure 2, the Alaska Top-Four Ranked-Choice Voting and Campaign Finance Laws Initiative, is on the ballot in Alaska as an indirect initiated state statute on November 3, 2020.
A "yes" vote supports making changes to Alaska's election policies, including:
* requiring persons and entities that contribute more than $2,000 that were themselves derived from donations, contributions, dues, or gifts to disclose the true sources (as defined in law) of the political contributions;
* replacing partisan primaries with open top-four primaries for state executive, state legislative, and congressional offices; and
* establishing ranked-choice voting for general elections, including the presidential election, in which voters would rank the candidates.
A "no" vote opposes the ballot initiative to change several of Alaska's election policies, including the adoption of top-four primaries, ranked-choice voting for general elections, and new campaign finance disclosure requirements.
