Lethbridge residents go to the polls for election day

This is a day many Albertans have been waiting for with the municipal election. Specifically our windy city of Lethbridge. As Micah Quinn explains, this is set to become a historic election day for a multitude of candidates.

Through the advance voting opportunities, 12 per cent of eligible Lethbridge voters have already cast their ballot for the 2021 Municipal Election.

Here are the results for advance polling.

  • ATB Centre total 4,642:

Returning Officer, Bonnie Hilford, says a total of 9,784 voters in Lethbridge have already voted before today’s election day. That represents 12 per cent of eligible voters. That compares with just 3,912 voters in the Advance Vote from 2017 or 5 per cent of the eligible vote.
