Municipal election resources

The surest way to be represented in the local community is to cast your own vote! While we of the Tongass Democrats prefer candidates who hold progressive values, what is most important that those elected represent the true will of the Juneau people.

There are so many ways to cast your ballot from now until October 3, and it’s so important that you do!

Read on for information about where and how to vote, as well as timelines and resources for any extra questions you might have.

Voting on Election Day:

Absentee by mail voting:

    • Application must be RECEIVED a full 7 days before the election, which means that the sooner it gets in the mail, the better.

Absentee by fax (or email):

    • The municipality prefers a ballot submitted by fax because it’s more secure, but they also accept ballots by email.
