Learn how to vote in municipal elections in the City of Lethbridge, register as a candidate and view campaigning guidelines and election results.

Voting locations

On Election day there are several polling stations set up throughout the city. Eligible voters can vote at any polling station location. There are also voting stations set up in assisted living facilities, hospitals and senior residences.

Polls are typically open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on election day.

Voting from home

If you cannot vote at a polling station due to a physical disability or other reason, you can request to vote from home. Please call 3-1-1 to request this service in advance of the election day.

What you need to vote

You are eligible to vote if you can provide authorized identification which shows that you are:

  • At least 18 years old
  • A Canadian Citizen
  • A resident of Lethbridge

Before you can receive a ballot at the voting polls, you must sign the elector register stating that you meet these qualifications. Rather than receiving a voter card in the mail, voters fill out this form at polling stations before voting. This form only takes a couple minutes to complete, but you can also fill out the elector register form in advance and turn in a hard copy at the voting station, if you wish.

ID requirements

When you go to vote, you must bring one piece of ID that includes your name and current address. Photo ID is not required. Electronic versions of ID are acceptable.

We accept the following types of ID at polling stations:

  • Alberta Identification Card
  • Bank or credit card statement or personal cheque
  • Correspondence issued by a school, college or university
  • Driver’s license
  • Government cheque or cheque stub
  • Income or property tax assessment notice
  • Insurance policy or coverage card
  • Letter from a public curator, public guardian or public trustee
  • Pension Plan statement of benefits, contributions or participation
  • Residential lease or mortgage statement
  • Statement of government benefits such as employment insurance, old-age security, social assistance, disability support, or child tax benefit
  • Utility bill
  • Vehicle ownership, registration or insurance certificate

If your ID shows a post office box number as the address instead of a residential or legal address, it can be accepted if the address is in reasonable proximity to the voting jurisdiction.

You can submit the following types of attestations in place of ID:

As a last resort, another voter may vouch for you if you don’t have ID or a suitable alternative available. The voucher must state that they know you and where you reside. A voter can only vouch for one person that lives at the same residence.
