|Alaska Capital Site Selection (1976)|
Election results via: Alaska Department of Elections
Text of measure
The language appeared on the ballot as:
The capital site selection committee has selected three potential capital sites which are set out below. The law provides that the qualified voters of the state are entitled to vote for one of the alternate capital sites selected by the committee and that the site receiving the greatest number of votes shall be the site of the new capital city of Alaska.
Path to the ballot
In August 1974, Alaskans approved Initiative 1, which asked them if the state capital should be moved from Juneau to somewhere in "Western Alaska." Since a majority of the state's citizens voted "yes," a selection committee selected three cities and referred them to the ballot.
