Libertarians gain voters, Dems lose in Alaska

Posted: Sunday, August 15, 2010

JUNEAU - Libertarians have picked up the most additional voters in Alaska over the past year.

The state Division of Elections reports about 6,530 more registered voters in the state on Aug. 3 than on the same date a year earlier.

All but one of the state's recognized parties gained voters; categories for undeclared or nonpartisan gained, too. Democrats lost more than 400 voters.

Among the categories seeing gains, Libertarians led the pack, with nearly 2,440 more voters than a year earlier. Nonpartisan and undeclared had the next biggest gains, and Republicans edged out the Alaskan Independence category for the fourth spot.

Republicans claim several times more total registered voters than the Independence party, though.

The biggest category of voters, overall, remains undeclared.
