Olympic Plebiscite - November 13, 2018



​​

On November 13, you will be asked to vote on whether or not you want the City of Calgary to pursue a bid for the 2026 Olympic and Paralympic games.

You can find details about the plebiscite at calgary.ca/vote2018. Here are the basics:

  • Advance voting: November 6 & 7 - from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
  • Voting day: November 13 - polls open from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

I urge you to vote in the plebiscite, and to do everything you can to inform yourself. I promise you I will be taking note of the results. Here are some resources:

  • calgary.ca/calgary2026​
    • This is a good place to start if you are looking for more information. It is where the City of Calgary shares details of the bid and how it came to be.
