Dates, times and location set for Ketchikan elections

    Ketchikan, Alaska (KINY) - Early in-person voting for the Oct. 6 City of Ketchikan and Ketchikan Gateway Borough Regular Election will be Sept. 21 through Oct. 5 at the Gateway Recreation Center, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    This is a change from prior years. Previously, absentee-in-person voting has been available at the borough and city clerks' offices.

    This year, for the convenience of the voters and to allow for additional social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, early voting for both the City of Ketchikan ballot and the borough ballot has been arranged to be provided at the Gateway Recreation Center.

    Voters registered in the city will vote two separate ballots. 

    In years past, voters registered in the City of Ketchikan precincts have voted a combined ballot with City of Ketchikan races and propositions on one side, and borough races and propositions on the other side. 

    This year, the ballots have been separated and city voters will need to vote two separate ballots.
