Residents can go to my.kpb.us/vote to fill out an application for a mail-in ballot.
Some precincts in the borough have been designated as “absentee by-mail” because the precincts’ turnout was less than 200 voters at the last regular election.
The residents of these precincts are automatically mailed a ballot by the Borough Clerk’s Office about two weeks prior to Election Day. Residents still have the option to vote early in person, but no poll workers are appointed to those precincts.
The following precincts have been designated “absentee by-mail” this year: Cooper Landing, Hope, Moose Pass, Fox River, Seldovia/Kachemak Bay and Tyonek.
