Juneau’s three legislative seats saw no changes in Tuesday’s election.
Both its state representatives were unopposed and the capital city’s senator wasn’t even on the ballot.
District 32 Democrat Beth Kerrtula got 5,291 votes, or 96 percent of ballots cast. The rest were write-ins.
Her district includes Juneau’s downtown and Lemon Creek, Douglas Island, Gustavus, Petersburg, Skagway and Tenakee.
District 31 Republican Cathy Muñoz had 6,067 votes, about 97 percent of the ballots cast. The others were write-ins.
She has Juneau’s Mendenhall Valley, Auke Bay and some other capital city neighborhoods in her district.
Democrat Dennis Egan is Juneau’s senator. His District P was the only one of 60 House or Senate seats not on the ballot this year.
He also represents Gustavus, Petersburg, Skagway and Tenakee.
Kerrtula and Muñoz were among 15 lawmakers unopposed in the general election.
