The Local Authorities Elections Act (LAEA) permits the use of electronic tabulators in municipal elections in Alberta. These tabulators scan ballots and count votes at voting stations as they are cast by electors. Results are only made available after voting stations close.
The integrity of the Edmonton Election is the top priority for Edmonton Elections. All processes and procedures are fully compliant with provincial and municipal legislation and are designed and delivered with a commitment to openness and transparency, without bias. The City Auditor’s Office provides a comprehensive review of these processes throughout the election, from development, to implementation on Election Day and post election evaluation.
