Alaska state elections in 2020 were held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. Aside from its party-run Democratic presidential primary held on April 10 (not including the Republican Party presidential primary which was cancelled by the state party[1]), its primary elections were held on August 18, 2020.[2]

In addition to the U.S. presidential race, Alaska voters elected the Class II U.S. Senator from Alaska, its at-large seat to the House of Representatives, 1 of 5 seats on the Alaska Supreme Court, 1 of 3 seats on the Alaska Court of Appeals, all of the seats of the Alaska House of Representatives, and 11 of 20 seats in the Alaska State Senate. There were also two ballot measures which were voted on.[2]

To vote by mail, registered Alaska voters had to request a ballot by October 24, 2020.[3]
