Voting Time for Employees
According to the Local Authorities Election Act, any employee who is eligible to vote has the right to three consecutive hours for voting while their voting station is open.
If you are only living in Cochrane temporarily (i.e. for the school year) and you normally live in another community, plan to return home to vote or contact your home municipality for voting options.
If a voter is unable to vote in the usual manner or requires assistance at any time, please speak to an election worker at the voting station.
