If you hear a knock on your door, it might be the enumerators looking to register voters for the upcoming provincial election.

From September 8th until the end of the month, enumerators are looking to confirm addresses, age, Canadian citizenship, and Alberta residency. All of this is needed to be able to vote next year.

Returning Officer for the Highwood 65, Brenda Honish, says, "this time we're also collecting information on future voters, which means anyone who is 16 or 17 can go on the list as electors, so when they turn 18, they go on the list of eligible voters."

Enumerators will try to visit the same property three times but if are unable to reach anyone will leave a note each time explaining the process and the other ways to register.

You must be registered to vote but can also do so on election day.

For those who don't get a chance to talk with an enumerator, visit elections.ca or call 1-877-422-8683 to provide the necessary information.
