Campaign season is upon us!  Candidate choice and politics are a deeply personal choice.  As you look at candidates in the upcoming state House/Senate as well as gubernatorial races, here is some information to keep in mind.
Per AS 15.13.070, the annual campaign contribution limit for an individual who is an Alaskan resident is as follows:  
As an Alaskan resident, every individual is limited to a $500/year cap on their campaign contributions to a candidate.  This applies to an individual contribution <--- from you personally.  YOU CANNOT give CASH.  It must be a personal check.  Some candidates accept credit cards through their websites for campaign contributions.  PLEASE NOTE:  You CANNOT give a contribution using a business check or from your business account.  Your campaign contribution needs to be with a personal check from your personal account.  Per AS 15.13.074(f), a corporation, company, partnership, firm, association, 501 (c)(3) entity, organization, business trust or surety, or labor union is prohibited from making campaign contributions to a candidate.  
I verified with the Alaska Public Office Commission (APOC) - If you are hosting a fundraiser at your home for a candidate, you are allowed to offer regular hospitality (food/beverage) to people who attend.  This means you do NOT have to consider the cost of the food/beverage you are providing in your home as part of the $500/year cap on your individual contribution to a candidate.  
Here is a link to the Alaska website that covers other types of campaign contribution limits - . 
If you have questions regarding campaign contributions or situations, contact the Alaska Public Offices Commission (APOC) at (907) 276-4176.
