Any eligible voter can cast an early ballot, even if they will be in the city on election day.
It's your first opportunity this weekend to vote in advance of Lethbridge's municipal election. Polls will be open on Saturday (Sep. 30) from 10:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. at Lethbridge City Hall. Returning Officer, Aleta Neufeld, says any eligible voter can cast an early ballot, even if they will be in the city on election day. Five advance voting stations will be set up around Lethbridge between September 30 and October 14, along with four mobile voting locations on October 5 and 12. In order to vote, you must be at least 18 years old, a Canadian citizen, reside in Alberta for six consecutive months prior to the election and be a resident of the city on election day. One piece of identification that lists both your name and current address is also required. Election day is October 16. -Tina Giesbrecht/Sam Borsato
