4. This.

The distance from the Aleutians to Barrow is farther than the distance from New York to L.A., and there are a whole lot of people out there who live a practically nomadic life: no internet access to speak of, and often no electricity from any sort of established source other than a Honda generator.

Voting in Alaska is not at all like voting at the 22nd precinct in Cleveland or wherever. Ballots are often literally flown by bush plane from some tiny village of twelve people into Juneau for manual tabulation. You don't just hit "enter" to send the votes out there.
