As per the Local Authorities Election Act (LAEA), special ballots are available to voters who are unable to vote during Advance Voting (October 4-13) or on Election Day (October 18) because of:

  • Disability
  • Absence from the local jurisdiction (city of Edmonton), or
  • Being a Returning Officer, Deputy Returning Officer, Substitute Returning Officer, constable, candidate, official agent or scrutineer who may be located on Election Day at a voting station other than that of the voter’s place of residence

Voters apply for a special ballot package, receive the package via mail or in person pick-up, complete the package and then return the package no later than Election Day.
