Prairie Post (West Edition) - - Alberta -

Al­berta’s Provin­cial Enu­mer­a­tion is un­der­way, with just a short period of time left for Al­ber­tans to regis­ter to vote by con­firm­ing or pro­vid­ing their in­for­ma­tion to Elec­tions Al­berta be­fore door-to-door vis­its com­mence on Septem­ber 8, 2018.

In­for­ma­tion is be­ing col­lected on all elec­tors, who are res­i­dents of Al­berta that are 18 years of age or older and Cana­dian cit­i­zens, to en­sure that they are on the list of elec­tors that will be used for the 2019 Provin­cial Gen­eral Elec­tion.

When the elec­tion is called, Al­ber­tans who are on the list of elec­tors will be mailed per­son­al­ized in­for­ma­tion about when and where to vote, and will re­ceive faster ser­vice at the polls.

Chief Elec­toral Of­fi­cer Glen Resler also an­nounced that for the first time, in­for­ma­tion on 16- and 17year-olds will also be col­lected, so that they can be added to the list of elec­tors when they turn 18, sim­pli­fy­ing the process of get­ting them on the vot­ers list.

Reg­is­ter­ing to vote can be com­pleted right now through a self-ser­vice process on­line or by con­tact­ing the Elec­tions Al­berta Call Cen­tre at 1877-422-VOTE (8683).

The on­line process re­quires an Al­berta Driver’s Li­cence or Iden­ti­fi­ca­tion Card to au­then­ti­cate the iden­tity of the elec­tor.

No iden­ti­fi­ca­tion is re­quired when reg­is­ter­ing with the Call Cen­tre.

The Call Cen­tre is open Mon­day through Fri­day from 8:15 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Satur­day and Sun­day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Start­ing Septem­ber 8, enu­mer­a­tors will be com­ing door-to-door through­out the province to col­lect in­for­ma­tion from any house­hold that has not yet reg­is­tered on­line or through the Call Cen­tre. Elec­tions Al­berta is em­ploy­ing over 7,000 Al­ber­tans to com­plete all the door-to-door vis­its be­tween Septem­ber 8 and 30, 2018.

Chief Elec­toral Of­fi­cer Glen Resler en­cour­ages all elec­tors to choose one of the three meth­ods of reg­is­ter­ing to vote to make sure they are on the list. “Even if you have voted pre­vi­ously, we need to ver­ify that the in­for­ma­tion that we have is still cur­rent,” said Resler.
