The contest has been by mail-in voting only and was rescheduled from the original date of 4 April due to the novel coronavirus outbreak. The Alaska Democratic Party received about 19,000 mail-in ballots, twice the number of voters who participated in 2016 caucuses across Alaska.
Results from the Alaska Democratic primary were shared via Twitter by Alaska Democrats.
The final results of Alaska's first ever party-run primary utilizing ranked-choice voting are as follows with 15 delegates and 2 alternates apportioned.— Alaska Democrats (@AlaskaDemocrats) April 12, 2020
Biden: 55.3%, 10,834 votes, 9 delegates including 1 alt.

The Alaska Democratic party said in a letter that they are "proud to have carried out this volunteer-led effort safely and effectively during this challenging time".
As Sanders suspended his campaign, Biden will apparently be the rival to incumbent US President Donald Trump in the upcoming US presidential election in November 2020.
