New voting regulations means that each of us has to provide proof of our address when we're voting on October 21st. Obviously that presents a challenge for Edmontonians who are homeless.

However, Edmonton Elections, agencies and the province are working together to find a solution.

Polling stations will be set up at Boyle Street Community Services and the Bissell Centre on election day. Staff at these agencies are able to vouch for a person's name using the shelter address, allowing that person to vote - a great initiative ensuring democracy is truly accessible to all Edmontonians.
