The 2016 civic election is fast-approaching, with voting options becoming publicly available starting early July.
Eligible voters who anticipate not being able to cast a ballot at an advance poll between Oct. 15-22, or on Election Day Oct. 26, can still take part through the mail-in ballot process.
It’s a little different than the usual step-up-and-vote practice:
- Applications to vote by mail must be made in person at the city clerk’s office at Saskatoon City Hall.
- Voters who apply to vote by mail will be required to complete a voter’s registration form and to establish their identity and residence.
- A Saskatchewan Drivers’ License is the best identification option for establishing your identity and residence. Other identification options are available; for a complete list visit saskatoon.ca/election2016 or call 306-975-3240.
Once a voter has applied, a mail-in ballot package will be sent via none other than the mail in early October.
It includes a ballot, along with instructions on how to complete and return the package. A self-addressed return envelope will be provided.
Ballots must be received by the returning officer by 8 p.m. on Election Day, Wednesday, Oct. 26.
