Candidates planning to run in this fall’s municipal election in Juneau can now pick up nominating petitions at the city clerk’s office.
To qualify for the October 2nd ballot, candidates must collect at least 25 signatures from qualified city and borough voters. The forms can be returned to the clerk’s office, starting Friday August 3rd and ending Monday August 13th.
Voters this year will be casting ballots for mayor, two assembly members, and three school board members. All the seats are for three year terms.
Candidates must be registered to vote in local and state elections, and have lived in Juneau for a full year if they’re running for assembly. In addition, candidates for District 1 and District 2 assembly seats must reside within those districts. District 1 includes downtown, Douglas, Lemon Creek and the airport area. District 2 encompasses the Mendenhall Valley and out the road.
