Vote Monday, Oct. 18 in the 2021 General Election
Monday, Oct. 18, 2021 is another chance to vote for Mayor, Councillor and Public or Separate School Trustee. Voters are also casting a ballot to vote on fluoridation, senate nominees and two referendum questions. Voting stations are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at 188 locations across the city.
Remember to cast your vote at your designated voting station and bring identification indicating your name and current address of residence. We encourage voters to vote early in the day to minimize wait times. If you are in line when voting stations close at 8 p.m., you will still be allowed to vote.
Know where to vote: Voters must cast their vote at their designated voting station. These locations are listed on the voter information cards and the Election Voter Guide mailed to all residences. Voters can also find their designated voting station by using our online Where Do I Vote tool.
There were many ways to vote in this election. The Advance Vote (Oct. 4-10) turnout was 141,329, not counting shelters, care facilities and voting stations outside of Calgary running elections as part of the separate school board. Special (mail-in) ballots are also being collected for those who were unable to physically visit a voting station.
“Our priority is to deliver an election that is safe and accessible for all eligible voters. More voting opportunities are being provided to Calgarians as part of the 2021 General Election with an increase in the total number of voting stations overall and longer hours to vote. I encourage everyone who is eligible to get out and vote if you haven’t already done so,” said Returning Officer Kate Martin.
Unofficial results will be announced on calgaryelectionresults.ca. Results by voting station will be posted on the open data catalogue by noon on Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2021 and official results will be posted by noon on Friday, Oct. 22, 2021.
