Check online to make sure you’re registered to vote in upcoming provincial election

Advance polls open Tuesday, April 9th to Saturday, April 13th

Albertans are heading to the polls on April 16.

To ensure the voting process is easy, it’s a good idea to check if you are registered to vote, said Red Deer-North returning officer Fred Gorman.

Albertans can check their voter registration status by heading to the Elections Alberta website.

If you are not registered, you can register by adding or updating your information online using Voterlink. This requires an Alberta driver’s license or an Alberta Identification Card.

If an individual doesn’t have access to the Internet or computer, they can go to the office at Parkland Mall to use the computer there, he said.

While Gorman said you can still register at the polls on election day, online registration is much easier.

“I recommend you take five minutes and go online and get registered. We’re available here at Parkland Mall if you need help.”

To cast your ballot in the spring election you must be a Canadian citizen who lives in Alberta and is at least 18 years old.

If you’d like to get ahead of the game, advance polls will open around the province on Tues., April 9 to Sat., April 13. Polling stations will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.

On election day, voters must vote at their designated polling station.
