Ever since statehood, a movement to relocate the capital out of Juneau comes up regularly. It happened first in 1960, just one year after Alaska entered the Union. That failed by about 5,000 votes.
Alaskans did vote to move the capital in 1974 by a margin of 11,000 votes, and in 1976 selected Willow as its new home. Designs were even drawn up. However in 1978 citizens passed a ballot measure that required the full cost of the move to be disclosed beforehand, and on the same ballot rejected nearly a billion dollars to build it.
