Advance Vote and Blind Voter Template Information for 2010 Calgary Civic Election




All eligible voters can vote during the Advance Vote at any advance voting location, say Election Officials, as The City of Calgary announced that the Advance Vote has been expanded by one day with seven additional voting locations.

The Advance Vote for the 2010 General Election will take place October 6-10 and 12-14, between noon and 7 p.m.

“Advance Vote is an opportunity for eligible voters to get out and vote early but remember you must bring acceptable ID,” says Barb Clifford, The City’s Returning Officer. All voters must show identification in order to vote. A complete list of acceptable forms of ID can be found at calgary.ca/election.

"At the Advanced Vote will also be the blind voter template - it is there so blind voters can vote unassisted," says Clifford.

Templates for those with vision loss are available ONLY at the Advance Vote. The templates and special ballots allow voters to mark their ballots without assistance.
