Hundreds on the southern Kenai Peninsula showed up to the polls on Tuesday to cast their votes for new city council and borough representatives, on top of a slate of ballot propositions. Early results are showing promising leads for incumbents across elections, as well as support for a bond package that would finance infrastructure improvements at Homer High and other schools. But canvas boards still have to count hundreds of absentee ballots before they finalize the results of the election, next week.
Early results for Tuesday’s municipal election show promising leads for incumbents in city and borough elections. Preliminary results — updated early Wednesday morning and posted on the Kenai Peninsula Borough webpage —are not final and do not include absentee votes, said Kenai Peninsula Borough Clerk Johni Blankenship. The borough will certify results Oct. 11.
