2020 Civic Election: Additional drop-off location available for mail-in ballots at City Hall

For immediate release: November 4, 2020 - 5:15pm
CK20-1687

To facilitate easy drop-off for voters, the election office has added City Hall as a location to return mail-in ballots.

Severe winter storm forecast

Voters are strongly encouraged to make a plan to cast their ballot before a predicted severe winter storm this weekend. Voters can attend any of the six advanced polls today or tomorrow until 7 p.m. and should anticipate wait times.

Polls are scheduled to be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. to vote in-person on Election Day, November 9.

Voters who received their mail-in ballot package on or after November 2, given the uncertainty of mailing times, should plan to drop it off in-person or have a designate (friend, family member, etc.) drop it off for them.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • The provincial law (The Local Government Election Act, 2015) for municipal elections states that to be counted, mail-in ballots must be received by election officials before 8:00 p.m. on election day (Monday, November 9). 
  • Mail-in ballots cannot be dropped off at advance poll locations or election day polls, only at the designated mail-in ballot locations. 

The election office wishes to thank all Saskatoon residents for their patience and confirms that all processing of the unprecedented and amazing demand for mail-in ballots was completed as of Monday, November 2.
