Summer Village Election Processes
I.D. 4 Council approved summer village election processes to allow the I.D. to hold the election in either July or August (and receive nominations in June or July). The benefits to the ID are:
- the process will ensure the majority of residents are in the area to vote and run for a council seat; and
- greater opportunity for larger interest in the election and higher voter turnout.

are 18 years old, a Canadian citizen, reside in Alberta on election day, and if your place of residence has been with the I.D. for a cumulative total of 150 days in the 12 months preceding election day.
Alternatively, you can be eligible to vote if (i) you are 18, a Canadian citizen and you are named as the assessed person for a property within ID No. 4, or (ii) you are 18, a Canadian citizen and the spouse or adult interdependent partner of a person referred to in (i).
Who is eligible to run as a candidate?
You are eligible to run as a candidate if you are (i) eligible to vote, have resided in Alberta for the six consecutive months immediately preceding nomination day, and you are not otherwise ineligible or disqualified.
