On Monday, October 16, 2017, Smoky Lake County residents will have an opportunity to vote for a Councillor, and School Trustees.
To be eligible to vote, you must be:
(Section 58 of the Local Authorities Election Act)
An employee, who is eligible to vote, is entitled to have three consecutive hours for the purpose of casting a vote while the voting stations are open on Election Day. If the hours of the employee's employment do not allow for three consecutive hours, the employer must allow the employee any additional time that is necessary to provide the three consecutive hours. This additional time for voting is granted at the convenience of the employer. No deduction from the pay of an employee can be made by the employer and no penalty can be imposed on the employee because of the employee's absence from working during the three consecutive hours or any part of the three hours.
