Voting officials say language assistance is available at the absentee voting location at the City Clerk’s office in Bethel. There are currently two Yup’ik proficient employees at the city office who are able to assist by explaining the ballots in Yup’ik.

Another option for language assistance is for a voter to bring one person of their choice to translate the ballots and voting information for them.
