2019 Provincial General Election Advance Poll Turnout

April 15, 2019

EDMONTON – Elections Alberta today announced unofficial voter turnout numbers for the advance polls that commenced on Tuesday, April 9th and ended on Saturday, April 13th, 2019.  Chief Electoral Officer, Glen Resler stated “The turnout at advance polls was record breaking, with almost triple the number of votes cast at the advance polls than in the 2015 general election.  With over 696,000 ballots cast province wide in five days, my appreciation goes out to all the election officers who worked tirelessly to provide so many accessible and convenient voting options for electors”.

Over the five days of advance poll voting, electors had the ability to cast their ballot at any of the 268 advance poll locations held across the province.  The estimated total of ballots cast during the advance polls is 696,000.

Ballots cast by electors within their electoral division will be counted following the close of polls on Election Night in their respective electoral divisions.  Approximately 473,000 ballots were cast by electors in their electoral divisions.

Ballots cast by electors at locations outside their electoral divisions will be counted in the days following Election Day. Approximately 223,000 ballots were cast by electors outside of their electoral divisions.

Please reference the attached Backgrounder for a breakdown of the ‘Vote Anywhere’ ballots that will remain to be counted following Election Day.
