What COVID-19 Protocols Do We Expect During the Voting Process and on Election Night?

As provincial public health measures for COVID-19 are consistently changing, it is difficult to determine the specific public health measures that will be in effect during the voting process and on election night at this time.    

The City of St. Albert and its Emergency Operations Centre are working together to determine what COVID-19 safety processes and protocols may be required to limit the spread of COVID-19 during the voting process, on election night and during the tabulation of votes.    

While specific processes are still to be determined and we do not yet know what provincial public health measures will be in effect, voters and election staff can expect such preventative measures such as physical distancing of 2 metres, hand sanitizer stations and one-way traffic.   

More information will be provided closer to election night.

More information will be posted to this page in Spring 2021.
