The polls have closed, but it's still too close to call for half of Unalaska's municipal races.

Tuesday's election set a new record for voter turnout. But with about 80 absentee and questioned ballots outstanding, City Clerk Cat Hazen said several races could go to runoffs, including mayor and City Council Seat C.

"There's a significant number of ballots that'll be canvassed on Friday — certainly enough to make a difference in the final results," said Hazen.

The City of Unalaska is looking for a new Director of Parks, Culture, and Recreation. That's because current director D. Tyrell McGirt has res​igned after a decade on the island.

"It's time," said McGirt. "I'm moving into the next chapter of my life, I'm getting married in December, and my fiancé and I are looking to start the next chapter of our lives in a place that's new and different for both of us."
