Running for re-election unopposed in the state Senate are: Juneau Democrat Dennis Egan, Bethel Democrat Lyman Hoffman, North Pole Republican John Coghill, Wasilla Republican Charlie Huggins and Kodiak Republican Gary Stevens.

Those without any election challengers in the state House: Juneau Democrat Beth Kerttula, Anchorage Democrat Sharon Cissna, Anchorage Democrat Les Gara, Dillingham Democrat Bryce Edgmon, Bethel Democrat Bob Herron, Kotzebue Democrat Reggie Joule, Juneau Republican Cathy Munoz, Wasilla Republican Wes Keller, and Eagle River Republican Anna Fairclough.
