Alaska does not have counties; instead there are fourteen divisions called municipalities and boroughs, and another thirteen Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act Corporations (ANCSA). These twenty-seven divisions were created after statehood. Many of the original district records are deposited at the State Archives or the National Archives—Pacific Alaska Region.

The State of Alaska website has an “Alaska Division of Elections” with contact information to cities and boroughs that is updated regularly. The Alaska local government municipalities and boroughs are as follows:
