Today (Friday) is the deadline to register to vote in the Kodiak Municipal Election on
October 7. Technically, the deadline is on Sunday, but to sign-up in person
with a registrar at the city or borough clerks’ offices, the effective deadline
is 5 p.m. Friday when their offices close.
Kodiak Clerk Debbie Marlar says the requirements are simple, but specific:
Register 1 20 sec “… at least 30 days before the city
holding a post office box in the city is not enough to be eligible to vote:
Register 2 38 sec “… be able to vote in the city
she occasionally gets calls from borough residents who live outside city
limits, wanting to vote in city elections:
Register 3 13 sec “… borough residents, but we’re not
all city residents.”)
the Kodiak City Council, Kodiak Island Borough Assembly and School Board, as
well as a handful of service area seats will be on the ballot during the Kodiak
Municipal Election, just about a month from now.
