Elections Alberta has received the Orders in Council to conduct a Referendum Vote in conjunction with the 2021 Alberta Municipal Elections
Both referendum questions allow for a ‘yes’ vote or a ‘no’ vote. The two questions are:
- Should section 36(2) of the Constitution Act, 1982 – Parliament and the government of Canada’s commitment to the principle of making equalization payments – be removed from the constitution?
- Do you want Alberta to adopt year-round Daylight Saving Time, which is summer hours, eliminating the need to change our clocks twice a year?
The Alberta Senate Election Act provides for a process for Alberta voters to elect Senate nominees in conjunction with the provincial or municipal election. Once Senate nominees are elected, their names are provided to the Queen's Privy Council for Canada, for consideration when filling Senate vacancies.
At the October 18th municipal election venue, you will have the opportunity to select two "Senator's-in-waiting".
We don't have the names of the candidates yet.
