Cast your vote before Election Day
October 3, 2017

Voters unable to cast their ballot on Election Day can take advantage of ten days of advance voting starting Wednesday, October 4, 2017.

“We want to ensure all eligible voters have the opportunity to vote, even if they are unable to on Election Day. Voting options and accessibility are our priority,” says Linda Sahli, Edmonton Elections Returning Officer. “With this in mind, we’re offering voting over the Thanksgiving holiday for the first time in our city.”

Ward-Based Advance Vote

Designated ward-based voting stations will run October 4-13, 1-7 p.m. daily, including the statutory holiday on October 9, 2017. Citizens must vote at the designated voting station for their ward; use the Where to Vote tool on the Edmonton Elections website to locate yours.

All ward-based advance vote stations will be equipped with an electronic ballot marking device that accommodates voters who require braille, sip-and-puff and audio cues.
Post-Secondary Vote

Advance voting opportunities are also available on select days at MacEwan University, NAIT and the University of Alberta. While these voting opportunities are intended for students and staff, all eligible voters may attend.

Special (Mail-in) Ballots

There is still time to request a Special (Mail-in) Ballot . This voting option is available for those out of town, unable to attend an Advance Vote or Election Day voting station and for individuals working or running in the election.

Identification Requirements

For all voting opportunities, citizens must present one piece of authorized identification that establishes both name and current residential address, such as a driver’s licence, insurance pink slip or utility bill. Passports are not accepted.
