Nearly all election jobs have been filled, with a few exceptions in Lumsden-Morse for August 10 only. Roughly 150 election workers are normally needed per constituency to administer an election. However, with the alternate procedures of voter information card scanners, electronic poll books, and vote counting equipment in place for these three events, only 29 election workers are needed in each of Regina Coronation Park and Regina Walsh Acres, and 73 workers in Lumsden-Morse.
Voter Information Cards in the mail
A total of 36,757 voter information cards for the three by-elections are now in the Canada Post mail stream. These cards let voters know where to vote with details about dates, times, and locations. Eligible voters may also register in-person at a voting location.
