Get off your butt – City of Edmonton municipal elections – October 15
This is a Ben Co. public service announcement:
ATTENTION ALL EDMONTON RESIDENTS!
As some of you know (and a painful amount of you don’t), there is an upcoming municipal election in Edmonton on October 15th. Being only a lowly permanent resident I am unable to vote (sniff!), but that doesn’t mean I can’t get you all to!
Where do I vote?
You can find out where your polling station is by using the City of Edmonton’s online search tool.
If you are having trouble finding your polling station contact

What should I bring?
You must present identification at the polls. The ID, such as an Alberta Driver’s Licence, Alberta Health Care Card or a Canadian passport, must confirm your age and identity. Click here for more ID options.
Also, don’t forget your civic pride. Or pants.
Who should I vote for?
While I certainly can’t tell you how to vote, I can show you all the options.
See the list of all candidates who are running here.
Want to contact a candidate? Daveberta.ca has pulled together a great list of candidates with their contact information here.
What ward am I in?
Check out a clickable ward map here to locate which ward you are in.
Oh, and in case you were as confused as I was, public school trustees are listed by wards according to letter, not by ward number like municipal candidates. This map should explain it for you.
But I live in Sherwood Park or St. Albert, what do I do?
But Ben, who would would you vote for if you could?
