Advance polling locations for the 2023 Alberta election are now open daily from 9am to 8pm every day through Saturday.
The UCP candidates for Lethbridge were both on hand at the Southern Alberta Ethnic Association to hand in their own ballots.
UCP Lethbridge-East candidate Nathan Neudorf highlighted the importance of getting out to the polls since every vote counts.
“We just want everybody to have the opportunity. So advance polls give people who might be working on Election Day a few more options. So we’d love to get everybody out to have a chance at their democratic duty to cast a ballot. For me, it’s just making sure people are aware of where and when they can vote and getting as many opportunities to do that. People have all kinds of different schedules. So that’s really our focus right now, is connecting with our supporters and making sure they get to the ballot.”
UCP Lethbridge-West candidate Cheryl Seaborn says she is completing the final preparations for her campaign ahead of the election on May 29th. She also stressed the importance of getting younger people out to vote.
“And we’ve been very fortunate, both myself and Nathan, in both of our campaigns. We have a lot of young people that have come out to door knock with us that are participating with us, university students, even highschool students coming out to participate with us. We feel that there is a young voter momentum happening, and we’re excited. We’re excited to see those young voters come out.”
