Tuesday is Election Day in Juneau.

The polls are open between 7 o’clock this morning and 8 o’clock tonight.

Once the polls close, city hall Assembly chambers will become Election Central, a place for candidates and the public to watch returns come in.  KTOO also will provide live election returns on radio or click here.

Two school board and three Assembly seats are up for election.

Juneau has 16 precincts. If you don’t know your polling place, you can access the Polling Station Locator online or call 888-383-8683.

City Clerk Laurie Sica says it’s also possible to cast a question ballot at a different polling place.

People don’t have to vote in their own poll.  They can vote at any poll on Election Day if they’re willing to vote the question ballot and those get reviewed,” Sica says. “As long as they’re a registered voter within the city and borough of Juneau, their ballot counts.  Sometimes it’s just for the sake of convenience.  It’s easier to get to a poll close to where they work.”

Absentee and question ballots will be counted on Friday.  The Canvas Board will meet next Tuesday to certify the election.
