Edmonton Municipal Election 2017

On October 16, 2017, Edmontonians will head out to the voting booths to decide our next city council in the 2017 Edmonton Municipal Election. As the next generation of Edmontonians, you have the opportunity to have a voice in deciding Edmonton's future, and we want to make sure you have all the tools and information you need to make an informed decision come election day. 

This year, Edmonton NextGen has recruited a talented team of volunteers from every ward in the city to host local and relevant events close to home. Our Ward Ambassadors are putting together fun and inspiring events designed to connect you with engaged fellow neighbours and give you the opportunity to discuss issues relevant to you and your community. Events will be happening in every ward, and each ward event will have its own flare and flavour. All events will be hosted right before the ward's scheduled candidate forum to give you the chance to get up to speed on important issues that will be raised and discussed by candidates. Following our ward event, we will all head down to attend the forums together. 

Edmonton NextGen is committed to giving voice to the next generation, which is why we believe so strongly in the importance of voting and raising awareness about this fundamental civic responsibility. All events organized by Edmonton NextGen are strictly nonpartisan. Our Ward Ambassadors have all received specialized training from Apathy is Boring to facilitate welcoming, nonpartisan discussions at our ward events.

For more information on an event near you, connect with us on Facebook or by emailing your Ward Ambassadors at elections@edmontonnextgen.ca
