With three weeks until Unalaska's Election Day, KUCB is seeking voter questions for the 2019 Candidates Forum.

School board candidates will share their platforms and answer questions on Friday, Sept. 13 at noon. City Council candidates will do the same on Thursday, Sept. 26 at 7 p.m.

Both forums will broadcast live from the station on 89.7 FM and Channel 8 TV.

Unalaskans have until Sunday, Sept. 1 to register to vote in the city's fall election.

The ballot features two contested races: one for the mayor's office, between Dennis Robinson and Vince Tutiakoff Sr., and another for school board seat D, between Josh Good and incumbent Denise Rankin.

This fall, Unalaska will elect a new mayor.

The city ballot, finalized Tuesday, shows the candidates vying for the mayor's office in the Oct. 1 election are Dennis Robinson and Vince Tutiakoff Sr.

Incumbent Frank Kelty did not file to run for reelection, suggesting he may be retiring from a decades-long career in local politics — something he mentioned after the 2016 runoff.
