            Depending on which ballot one chooses, you can vote either in the open primary, which includes Democrats, Alaska Independence and Libertarian party candidates, or in the closed Republican primary. To choose the closed primary ballot, you must be registered Republican, Undeclared or Non-Partisan.

            For the U.S. House race on the Republican side is Kodiak’s Gabrielle LeDoux, who, along with Sean Parnell, is challenging incumbent Representative Don Young.

            Ballot Measure Number 2 would ban same-day shooting of grizzly bears and require that predator control be carried out by Fish and Game employees rather than be farmed out to private citizens.

            Ballot Measure Number 3 is the Clean Elections Initiative, which would establish a voluntary program of public funding of political candidates in an effort to cut down on financial influence of elections.
