Primary Elections: Where to vote

Polling places and times for Tuesday elections

Alaskans will choose who they want to see on the November ballot Tuesday, as votes are cast in the Aug. 18, Primary Election to select which
candidates will ultimately represent their party at the state and federal level.

Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. The Alaska Department of Elections isn’t requiring voters to wear cloth face coverings, but strongly recommends doing so.
However, the City and Borough of Juneau has its own mask mandate in place, requiring cloth face coverings at all polling places.

Alaska lets recognized parties choose who they allow to vote in their primaries. Only registered Republican voters can vote in the GOP primary, but
Alaska’s Democratic is open to those registered as non-partisan as well.

DOE’s website provides additional information on alternative forms of voting, or voter assistance for the elderly or physically
disabled
.

The following is a list of polling locations in the Juneau area for Districts 33 and 34, which cover Juneau,
Gustavus, Haines and Klukwan. All information provided on the DOE website is up to date and accurate, according to DOE Director Gail Fenumiai.

Absentee ballots must be postmarked on or before Election Day and must be signed by the voter and one witness who must be over 18. However, United
States Postal Service workers will no longer be able to act as a witness for absentee ballots, due to a recent rule change.

Max Cava, station manager at the Federal Station Post Office at the Hurff A. Saunders Federal Building in Juneau told the Empire Friday he had
received a memo informing him of the change last week, but did not recall the reasoning for the decision.

Postal workers had previously been able to sign Alaska absentee ballots according to Carol Thomas, elections operations managers at the Division of
Elections Absentee and Petition Office.
