The 1984 United States Senate election in Alaska was held on November 6, 1984. Incumbent Republican United States Senator Ted Stevens sought re-election to a third term in the United States Senate. Owing to his popularity and the conservative bent of Alaska, Stevens did not face major opposition, and easily crushed former Alaska Attorney General John Havelock in the general election.
