Advance polls for Saskatoon’s civic election open Friday

The City of Saskatoon’s returning officer is asking people to consider voting in advance polls before this year’s municipal election.

Starting on Friday, voters can cast their ballots at nine advance polling locations located across the city. Advance polls will be open from Oct. 30 to Nov. 5, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. CST.

The advance poll locations are: 

  • Lawson Heights Mall.
  • Confederation Mall.
  • Market Mall.
  • The Centre Mall.
  • City Hall, Committee Room E.
  • Ebenezer Baptist Church.
  • Prairieland Park.
  • Station 20 West.
  • Lakewood Civic Centre.

There will also be a drive-thru poll located at 422 46th Street East on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST.

Polls at the Centre Mall and the drive-thru voting location do not have voter assist terminals.

Any eligible voter can use any of the advanced polls to vote. The polls aren’t tied to a particular ward of the city.

While government issued photo ID with your current address (like a drivers license) is preferred, other forms of ID are also accepted.

If you don’t bring in a drivers license, you must bring two pieces of ID. One piece of ID must contain your current address, like a bill or blank cheque. The second does not require an address and can be a credit card, health card or social security card.

If the person does not have ID on them, another person entitled to vote in that election can vouch for them.

As civic elections do not have voting lists like federal or provincial elections, voters must fill out a voter registration information form before voting. For an online copy of the form, click here.

A statement from the city said people should consider voting mid-morning or mid-afternoon to beat the crowds.

Election day in Saskatoon will be held Monday, November 9.
