The 1984 United States presidential election in Alaska took place on November 6, 1984, as part of the 1984 United States presidential election. Voters chose three representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Alaska was won by incumbent President Ronald Reagan ( R- California) with almost two-thirds of the popular vote against Walter Mondale ( D- Minnesota) with 29.9%. [1] Reagan ultimately won the national vote, winning re-election. Alaska has only voted Democratic once, and that was in the 1964 election for Lyndon B. Johnson. Libertarian candidate David Bergland also had his best performance in this state, but did not receive nearly as much support as Ed Clark did in the previous election. [2]
