Everything you need to know to vote on Tuesday

Everything you need to know to vote

You must be a Canadian citizen, a resident of Alberta and at least 18 years old to vote in Tuesday’s provincial general election.

Polls will be open from 9 a.m to 8 p.m.

Fred Gorman, returning officer for Red Deer-North, encourages voters to get out and vote.

He is pleased to see high turnout during the advance polls, but says “the job hasn’t been done yet. It’s part of democracy.”

Elections Alberta has mailed out cards to registered voters instructing them where to cast their ballot. Alternatively, the Where Do I Vote section on the elections.ab.ca website asks Albertans to insert their address to find their assigned voting location.

Electors may only vote at their assigned polling station.

Albertans can also call 1-877-422-8683 to find out their voting location.

If you haven’t registered, you can do so at the polls.

To be able to register, you must provide identification proving your name and address. You can provide one piece of government-issued photo ID with your name and current address (such as your driver’s licence or Alberta Identification Card).

If you cannot provide government-issued ID, you must provide two pieces of authorized ID, such as an AISH card, Alberta Wildlife Card, birth certificate, citizenship card, marriage certificate, Veteran’s Affairs Canada Health Card, Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan card, among others. Both must have your name. One must have your current physical address.

A full list of acceptable forms of ID is available on the Elections Alberta website.

The City of Red Deer is divided into two provincial ridings: Red Deer-North and Red Deer-South.

Candidates for the Red Deer-North riding are Matt Chapin for the Freedom Conservative Party, Paul Hardy with the Alberta Party, Adriana LaGrange for the United Conservative Party, Michael Neufeld for the Alberta Independence Party and Kim Schreiner with the Alberta NDP.

Teah-Jay Cartwright is representing the Freedom Conservative Party in Red Deer-South, along with Lori Curran for the Green Party of Alberta, Ryan McDougall for the Alberta Party, Barb Miller with Alberta NDP and Jason Stephan with the United Conservative Party.
