Edmonton Election 2013
Monday, October 21, 2013
On October 21, Edmontonians will head to the polls to elect new leadership. With Mayor Stephen Mandel choosing to step away from municipal politics, Edmontonians will elect a new mayor for the first time in almost a decade. There was a 33.4 per cent voter turnout for the 2010 Edmonton Election, with 199,359 Edmontonians marking a ballot for Mayor, Councillor and Public or Catholic/Separate School Trustee.
The City of Edmonton is divided into 12 wards, each represented by a single Councillor. The Mayor is elected by a city-wide vote. There are 9 Edmonton Public School Board wards. There are 7 Edmonton Catholic Separate School District Wards. Edmonton City Council and School District Trustee elections are held on the same day, use the same ballot and are overseen by the City's Returning Officer. This year marks the start of four-year terms.
