Voting in Federal, Provincial or Municipal Elections The Canada Elections Act, Alberta Election Act, and Alberta Local Authorities Election Act stipulate an employee, who qualifies as an elector, will be allowed three consecutive hours during the period polls are open, to vote in federal, provincial, or municipal elections. Employees who work the normal daily hours of 8:15 am to 4:30 pm on Election Day do not require time off when the polls close at 7:30 pm or later. For employees who work shifts, work irregular hours, or vote at an advance poll, departments should ensure the employee’s work schedule allows for the required three consecutive hours. Employees will not be deducted salary for time off to vote. This includes advanced polls so if you have had 3 consecutive hours on any day the polls are open including advanced polls employers are not required to allow you to leave early on election day. You can vote at any polling station in the advanced polling locations even if it is not in your residency area.
Please get out and vote and have your voice heard in the Provincial election.
