LETHBRIDGE - Voter identification is now required for the upcoming municipal election.
In the past, the City has stayed away from ID requirements
because they felt it disenfranchised certain groups of people, specifically the
young and old. However, the province has passed rules which apply to all
municipalities saying they must ask for ID in the upcoming election.
will need to provide something that has your name and current residential
address like a drivers license, utility bill, cheque or vehicle registration
card. A full list of acceptable ID can be found at http://www.lethbridge.ca/City-Government/Elections/Pages/Voter-Identification.aspx.
On Monday, October 21st, residents will elect a new Mayor, 8 Councillors, 7
Public School Board Trustees and 5 Separate School Board Trustees. All will
serve a 4 year term.
