Twenty-four (24) local ballot measures are on the October 6, 2009 ballot in ten boroughs in Alaska.

Two of the measures are about alcohol; namely the selling and distribution of it. Two measures ask voters to approve school bonds and two ask for general obligation bonds to be approved. Four of these measures want to change the rules governing campaign finance disclosure to be a matter of local rather than state discretion. Three measures seek a tax increase. Then there are individual measures about air quality testing, if indoor smoking should be allowed, if a tobacco tax should be increased, about rezoning a highway and creation of a solid waste management authority. There are also measures about term limitation for city officials, changing the mayor's duties, enlarging a city council, amending a city charter, unionization of workers and also a recall of a city council member.
