Unalaskans can now file to run for local office.

The candidacy period has opened for three seats that'll be on the municipal ballot come October. 

The two City Council spots are currently held by Alejandro "Bong" Tungul and Shari Coleman, while the school board post belongs to Tammy Fowler Pound.

As of July 23, no one had declared candidacy for any of the seats, which come with three-year terms.

Prospective candidates must file at City Hall by Aug. 16, and Unalaskans must register to vote by Sept. 2. The municipal election is Oct. 2.
