Alaska Democrats look to change how they vote for democrat presidential candidates

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Alaska Democratic Party is considering changing the way they give state support to democratic presidential primary candidates.
According to AP, the Alaska Democratic Party currently uses a caucus to determine who the state will support for the democratic presidential nomination.
However, the party is looking to change to a primary based system for the 2020 presidential election.
Executive Director, Jay Parmley, said Thursday that state caucus participation continues to increase, but that there are barriers to participating in a caucus system, especially in rural areas.
Parmley said Democrats plan to use a rank-voting system. It's not clear how many candidates voters could rank though Parmley expected it would be on the lower end.
He change will be open to public comment before state leaders finalize a plan and send it to the Democrat National Committee.
