It is Municipal Election Day across Alberta.
The Chair of the Grande Prairie & District Chamber of Commerce is encouraging people to head out to the polls.
Dennis Bell believes “it’s really important to get out and vote.”
“You know, to pick who will best represent your values for the next four years. Every vote counts. This is just a great opportunity to make your voice heard.”
He thinks it should be an interesting vote this year.
“Especially in the city, there’s a lot of candidates running. We just hosted a forum (October 3). There’s quite a wide variety of candidates running.”
Bell says Abraham Lincoln had a good quote about elections.
“Elections belong to the people. It’s their decision. If they decide to turn their backs on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will be the ones that have to sit on their blisters.”
We will have live updates until 10 pm tonight. We will also have results on our web and social media pages.
