Ahead of CBJ’s Oct. 5 Regular Election, make sure your ballot is mailed to the correct address

August 6, 2021 – News

On the anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the City and Borough of Juneau encourages residents to register to vote or – if you’re already registered to vote – check the mailing address associated with your voter registration in advance of the October 5 Regular Municipal Election. This election is being conducted by mail.

Register to vote online on the Alaska Division of Elections website. Sunday, September 5, is the final day to register to vote to participate in the October 5 election. Any youth who will turn 18 by Election Day can register to vote up to 90 days prior to their 18th birthday and will need to register no later than September 5 to participate in this year’s Regular Municipal Election.

If you’re already registered to vote, ensure CBJ has an accurate mailing address by going to the State of Alaska Division of Elections voter information website myvoterinformation.alaska.gov. Check and/or update your residence and mailing address so you can receive your ballot by mail.

If you would prefer to register to vote in person or update your voter registration information in person, you can do so at any of the following locations during regular business hours:

  • Municipal Clerk’s Office – City Hall Room 202 (155 S. Seward Street)
  • All three Juneau Public Libraries (Downtown, Douglas, Mendenhall Valley branches)
  • State of Alaska Division of Elections – Region I Office located in the Mendenhall Mall Annex
  • Zach Gordon Youth Center (396 Whittier Street)

For voters who will be traveling, heading off to college, or otherwise won’t be at your regular mailing address between September 14 and October 5, you can submit an application to have your CBJ Regular Election ballot mailed to an alternative temporary mailing address. Applications to vote at a temporary address are encouraged to be submitted no later than September 4 to be included in the initial ballot mailing and must be received by the Municipal Clerk’s Office no later than September 28. Ballots will not be forwarded.

For more information, contact the CBJ’s Municipal Clerk’s Office at 586-5278 and choose option 4, or go to the CBJ Elections webpage.
