Interested in Running for Office – Candidate Filing Period is coming up 7/15-7/25/2022

Thinking of Running for Local Office?

Serving on the Assembly or Board of Education “School Board” is a noble contribution to your community, and one which comes with hours of work and little economic reward. You will hear about the issues from your neighbors, friends, family and people on the street, and your private life will be reduced. You will be presented with pages and pages of information to read before meetings, sit through hours and hours of meetings, only to be required to make tough decisions that may not be popular. You may even have to deal with extraordinary circumstances such as a once-in-a-century pandemic.  Still interested?  Then read on…

Your quest will start with the Municipal Clerk’s office & the CBJ Elections Webpage.  https://juneau.org/clerk/elections.

The Candidate filing period opens on Friday, July 15 at 8:00a.m. and closes at 4:30p.m. on Monday, July 25.  Full details and copies of the Declaration of Candidacy forms and Nomination Petitions are available on the election webpage https://juneau.org/clerk/elections. In addition to the Declaration of Candidacy and Nominating Petitions, prospective candidates will also need to submit an Alaska Public Offices Commission (APOC) Public Official Financial Disclosure (POFD) Statement prior to the close of the filing period on Monday, July 25.

Each year on the first Tuesday in October, a local election is held in the City and Borough of Juneau to elect candidates.  The Assembly and School Board members serve for staggered three-year terms.
