It's less than two weeks until people all over Alberta head to the polls to elect new municipal governments.
The General Municipal Election and School Board Election is scheduled for Monday, October 16.
"You have to be 18 years of age, a Canadian citizen, you have to have resided in Alberta for six months immediately preceeding election day and you have to be a resident of Drumheller," outlined Barb Miller, the returning officer for Drumheller this year.
Miller noted the Town of Drumheller is also running the local trustee elections on behalf of the Golden Hills and Christ the Redeemer Catholic School Divisions and people in nearby communities like Carbon and Munson will have to come to Drumheller for the school board vote.
So, what do you need to take with you to the polling station?
"Some form of evidence that you do reside or are eligible to vote within the Town of Drumheller," replied Miller. "Anything such as a driver's license, a utility bill, a pay stub, anything at all that shows that you do reside here."
While the majority of votes will be cast on October 16, Miller noted there are a couple of advance polls for people who won't be around on Election Day.
"The first one is scheduled for Thursday, October 5 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the BCF. The second advance vote is scheduled for Saturday, October 14 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., also at the BCF."
