            Overall voter turnout in Tuesday's Municipal Election was unofficially calculated at 27 percent. Just over 2,600 ballots were cast from a base of over 9,600 registered voters. So, just more than one-in-four of those eligible took the time to cast a vote.

            The lowest turnouts were in the Port Lions and Bells Flats precincts, where only 14 percent of registered voters turned out, which is about half the average for the borough. Larsen Bay had just a bit more, with 17 percent turnout.

            The Old Harbor and Kodiak Number Two precincts had 22 percent turnout, while Chiniak had 23.

            Kodiak Number One, at Fisherman's Hall, had 27 percent and Bayside had 29 percent turnout. The highest was in Ouzinkie, where about a third of the voters went to the polls.

            Several races are still too close to call. In the city, the vote whether to allow employees to discuss unionization is failing by just 17 votes, and in the race for a one-year council seat, Jon Whiddon has a slim lead over Mike Woodruff.

            In the borough, Jerrol Friend also has a slim lead over challenger Dave King for the assembly, and while the 76-million-dollar bond to remodel and expand the high school is leading, it could change, based on how the count of absentee and questioned ballots goes. That will be determined on Wednesday when both the city and borough canvass the elections and the final counts will be determined.

            The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officially designated 5,855 acres as critical habitat for southwest Alaska sea otters on Wednesday. The areas span from the end of the Aleutians to the Alaska Peninsula and mostly include near-shore areas that are less than 20 meters deep and kelp beds. U.S. Fish and Wildlife spokesperson Bruce Woods says the designation only affects federal activities in the area.

Airport Substation Breaker Causes Power Outage PDF Print E-mail

            The Airport Substation continues to cause problems for Kodiak Electric customers out at the Coast Guard Base, Aviation Hill, Bells Flats and beyond.

            Another breaker failure at the substation plunged the customers into darkness at about 10 p.m. last night. Kodiak Electric says power was finally restored to all customers by about 1 this morning.

            The infrastructure at the Airport Substation is a regular source of frustration for residents beyond that point, as it trips off several times a year.

Voter Turnout 27 Percent PDF Print E-mail

            The Borough Clerk's Office sent out a notice this morning showing there are 197 absentee ballots, 126 questioned ballots, and seven ballots cast by a personal representative for someone who otherwise couldn't make it to a polling place. That's a total of 330 outstanding ballots, however that number could grow once the number of questioned ballots from the villages and Chiniak are known. The canvassing of the election will be done next Wednesday.

            Overall, voter turnout was unofficially pegged at 27 percent, with about 2,606 people - out of 9,649 registered voters - casting a ballot.

Unionization Code Change, Whiddon-Woodruff Race, Too Close To Call PDF Print E-mail

            Giving City of Kodiak workers the right to discuss unionization is hanging in the balance in an election that is too close to call. City Proposition 1, which would change city code to remove the roadblock to collective bargaining, currently is failing by a small handful of votes, with 409 NO, and 392 YES.

            The race between Jon Whiddon and Mike Woodruff for a one-year term on the council is also very close, and, according to City Clerk Debra Marlar, too close to call until the canvas of the election is done a week from today. Marlar said there are 141 questioned ballots still outstanding.

            Whiddon has 426 votes to Woodruff's 348. Both operate fish processing plants in Kodiak. Whiddon is a retired Coast Guard helicopter pilot and Woodruff is the son of the late Dave Woodruff, who served many years on the Kodiak City Council.

            The race for mayor is less close, though with 308, Charlie Davidson got more votes than most challengers do against incumbent Carolyn Floyd, who received 497.

            The two incumbents seeking re-election to three-year terms ran unopposed. Josie Rosales got 528 votes and Gabriel Saravia got 520.
