The voter must sign a certificate with the following statement: “I understand that by using fax transmission to return my marked ballot, I am voluntarily waiving a portion of my right to a secret ballot to the extent necessary to process my ballot, but expect that my vote will be held as confidential as possible.”

To receive an application for a faxed ballot, contact the Election Official at (907) 586-5278, or send an email to: city.clerk@juneau.org

For the October 1, 2019 Regular Election, the signed application for a fax ballot must be received in the City Clerk’s Office no later than 5:00 p.m. on Monday, September 30. When a completed application for a faxed ballot is received, a ballot will be faxed or e-mailed, along with instructions for marking and submitting the voted, witnessed ballot by fax or mail.

Personal Representative Voting:

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 16, 2019, up to and 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 the methods above, may contact the Clerk’s Office to make arrangements for an absentee ballot by personal representative.
