Voters have four options to vote in the provincial general election: on Election Day, during advance voting, by special ballot, or at mobile voting stations.
On Election Day on May 29, voters must vote at their assigned voting place. All voting locations will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Advance voting runs the week before Election Day, from May 23 to 27, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., but days and hours may vary. Any eligible elector may vote at any advance voting location in Alberta.
Special ballot voting is available in the returning office and by mail for voters that are unable to vote in advance or on Election Day due to:
• Physical disability.
• Absence from their electoral division.
• Being an inmate.
• Being an election officer, candidate, official agent or scrutineer.
• Living in a remote area, as defined in the Election Act.
• Being displaced by emergency or disaster, such as fire or flood.
Requests for a special ballot to be mailed out can only be made until May 22 at 6 p.m.
Mobile voting stations may also be available if one has been established for residents, inpatients, or individuals receiving supports and services from treatment centres, hospitals, supportive living facilities, long-term care facilities, shelters and community support centres.
