Go online and try it out:


Option 3: Special (Mail-in) Ballot

The final way to vote is intended for people who will be out of town on Election Day, who are unable to get to a voting station, or who are election and campaign workers.  If you fall into one of these groups, you can request a Special (Mail-in) Ballot.  Visit the Edmonton Elections website for more information and to apply:


Required Identification

No matter the voting opportunity, you’ll need to present a piece of authorized identification that confirms both your name and residential address, like a Driver’s Licence. A bank statement, utility bill or personal cheque will also work! A passport, Alberta Health Care card, birth certificate or work/student ID will not be accepted.


Hear From Your Candidates

Edmonton Elections is hosting municipal candidate forums from Sept. 25 to Oct. 11. Drop by the forum or watch online to hear from your Mayoral and City Councillor candidates.
