About Elections Alberta

The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms gives every Canadian citizen the right to vote. Elections Alberta is the official steward of that right in Alberta.

Elections Alberta is an independent, non-partisan office of the Legislative Assembly responsible for administering provincial elections, by-elections and referenda. We administer the Election Act and the provincial electoral process in this province. We are responsible for administering elections at the provincial level, and do not administer or monitor federal or municipal elections.
