CBJ Clerk figures turnout in Tuesday's local election will be similar to last year

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Juneau voters go to the polls Tuesday to decide three Assembly seats, two school board seats and two propositions.

    CBJ Clerk Laurie Sica said on Action Line Thursday that there are still opportunities to vote prior to election day.  

    She said there's an early voting station set up in City Hall which is open on week days from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

    Another station is available in the Valley at the Mendenhall Mall Annex.  It's in the hall way between the State Division of Elections and State Farm offices.  That station is open on weekdays between 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and from Noon to 4 p.m. Saturday.

    When  asked about the rate of early and absentee voting to date and how that might point to the turnout for this election, Sica said it is very close to last year at this point in time.  "I think there was like four additional votes as of Monday in the Valley and about three additional votes downtown."
    The turnout in the 2016 local election was 33.5 percent.  

    The clerk says there were 25,049 registered voters in the City and Borough of Juneau as of September 3 which was the deadline to register for the local election.

    Polls will be open election day from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
