Municipal Election Tues., Oct. 2nd

  • Listed: August 27, 2018 12:36 pm
  • Expires: 16 days, 18 hours
Sitka voting 2017


The City of Sitka election will be held on Tuesday, 10/2/18. We anticipate publishing a copy of the ballot for this election in the Sitka Soup that comes out on Thurs., Sept. 20th. In addition to voting for Mayor, City Assembly members & School Board members, Sitkans will be asked to consider at least two measures that are expected to appear on the ballot.

Per KCAW reporter Emily Kwong:

“Beginning October 1st, Alaska will ban smoking in restaurants, bars, and other public places. But it still may be legal to light up in Sitka under an opt-out provision. SB63 includes language that allows communities to ask their citizens if they want to uphold the statewide anti-smoking law. Sitka has decided to explore that option and will put a smoking ban question on the ballot this fall. The ballot will also ask voters if they want to reinstate the senior sales tax exemption, eliminated earlier this year.”

For additional information on the candidates and on procedures for absentee voting, etc., please see For the full text of SB63, please see
