Do you know the Five Ws of voting in the 2021 M.D. of Bonnyville election?

  • Who?
  • What?
  • Where?
  • When?
  • Why?

Who's involved

This is an important one because there are actually two answers — candidates and residents/voters. Click here for information on the candidates.

As for you, the voter, there is a lot of information available to you — for instance, what do you need to vote, where can you vote, when can you vote, and why you should vote.

Who can vote: Canadian residents whose primary residence is in the M.D., who have lived in the Province of Alberta for at least six months and live in the M.D. on election day, and who are at least 18 years of age.
All voters must show one piece of ID to verify their name and current address. Once this is done, you will receive a ballot to cast your vote. Click here to see what kind of ID can be used.

What

Municipal elections are held every four years in Alberta. In the M.D. of Bonnyville, we elect six councillors (one to represent each Ward) and one Reeve (from the population at large). The Council is responsible to make decisions about taxation, roads, public safety, recreation, and other important aspects of our everyday life.

How the province is involved this year: This year there are two referendum questions being asked by the Province of Alberta. You can find out more about these questions by clicking here. The province is also asking voters to choose three candidates to recommend for the federal Senate to represent Alberta. You can find out more about that election and the candidates here.

Why

Voting in municipal elections is important for a few reasons:

  1. You are exercising your democratic right,
  2. You are performing a service to your community,
  3. You are showing that you are engaged with your community,
  4. It is a chance to have your say and help shape the future of the community, and this year, with provincial referendum questions and senate elections, it also helps shape the future of Alberta and Canada!
