AS 29.06.360. Election On Charter.
- (a) The proposed home rule charter adopted by the charter commission shall be submitted to the voters at a borough
election held within 60 days of the date of publication and posting of the proposed charter. The borough clerk shall
prepare the ballots for use in the election and shall give notice of the election by radio and television in a manner
intended to apprise the entire borough population of the election. The election shall be conducted under procedures
applicable to regular elections.
- (b) A person who is a voter of the borough may vote in the election on the proposed charter.
- (c) If the charter is approved by a majority of the votes in each home rule and first class city in the borough and the
charter is approved by a majority of all the votes in the area of the borough outside all home rule or first class
cities, the charter is ratified. If the charter is not approved by a majority of the votes in each home rule and first
class city, the charter is ratified only if at least 55 percent of all the voters voting on the question in home rule
and first class cities approve it and if a majority of the voters outside those cities approve it. If the charter is
ratified, election results shall be certified to the commission and two copies of the charter shall be filed with
- (1) the lieutenant governor;
- (2) the department;
- (3) the district recorder for the area of the borough;
- (4) the clerk of the borough;
- (5) the clerk of each city in the borough.
- (d) If a proposed charter is rejected, the charter commission shall prepare, adopt, and submit another proposed charter to
the voters at a borough election held within one year after the date of the first charter election. If the second
proposed charter is also rejected, the charter commission shall be dissolved and the question of unification shall be
treated as if it had never been proposed or approved.
