City of Edmonton survey:  “Understanding Voting Needs”

The goal of this consultation is to listen to, identify, and engage with specific groups within The City of Edmonton (Seniors, Aboriginal Persons, New Canadians, Youth, and Persons with Disabilities) on voting and the voting process in elections within the City. This consultation will provide the opportunity to communicate with specific stakeholder groups in the community on ways to reduce barriers to voting and gain information that can be used to prepare recommendations for future elections.
