Alaskan Independence Party Activity Was Much Higher in 2020 than in Previous Decade

Ballot Access News

The Alaskan Independence Party is one of the nation’s oldest one-state parties. It first appeared on Alaska ballots in 1974. Until 2020, it had seemed dormant. It had no nominees in 2018, only one in 2016, and none on the ballot in 2014 and 2012.

But in 2020, it polled its highest percentage ever for U.S. Senate (4.73%, for John Wayne Howe), and it had three legislative candidates on the ballot, the most since 2004. Its nominee for State Senate, district P on the Kenai Peninsula, polled 35.06% in a two-person race against a Republican.

Here is the party’s website, showing that it still believes in a new relationship between Alaska and the remainder of the United States.
