Juneau, Alaska (KINY) CBJ Clerk Beth McEwen has some tips on how to vote this year.
A qualified voter may vote an absentee ballot for any reason. It can be cast in person, or requested from the election official in writing by application with the voter's signature. Absentee ballots are available until September 17.
Early vote and absentee-in-person voting begin September 17. Locations are City Hall in the 2nd Floor Conference room 224 foyer from 8 am until 4 pm and at the Mendenhall Mall Annex, Monday through Friday 11 am until 6 pm and Saturdays September 22 and 29 from noon to 4 pm. The early vote ends on October 1st.
You can also vote by mail. Applications for ballots can be obtained in the Municipal Clerk's Office or online at https://beta.juneau.org/clerk/elections. Applications must be received by Tuesday, September 25.
The CBJ also offers to vote by fax ballot. These ballots must be received no later than October 1 at 5 pm. More details are available at the elections website.
A qualified voter who is unable to go to the polling place on election day due to age, illness or disability, may appoint a personal representative to obtain a ballot for the voter on or after September 17 including election day. Persons who are ill or unable to go to the polls who still wish to vote and have not chosen one of these methods can make arrangements with the Clerk's office for an absentee ballot by personal representative.
