Tomorrow is municipal election day. But many Kenai Peninsula Borough residents have already voted.
In a typical year, around 300 to 500 people vote in borough elections by mail, said borough Clerk Johni Blankenship. This year, the borough sent out absentee ballot applications to every registered voter in the borough — about 3,000 — in mid-August. Blankenship says they have received about 2,000 back.
As of this morning, another 1,200 residents had voted early in person. That’s consistent with prior years.
