What’s new this year?

For the first time in a Calgary municipal election, vote tabulators will be used. This will help speed up the ballot-counting process. The City has also reviewed their voting subdivision areas (the area each voting station serves), voting station locations and the voting station process. This will help speed up the voting process.
