Municipal elections will be held across Alberta on October 18, 2010 and Students’ Unions are making sure their students will have access to the resources needed to make an informed decision.

The University of Calgary Students’ Union has been laying the groundwork all summer for their iVote campaign, which is encouraging students to vote through candidate forums, advance polling stations and getting the information out to student on how to successfully cast their ballot. The mayoral forum, with all major candidates expected to appear, will happen tomorrow evening, Sept. 29 at 7:30pm in Mac Hall at the U of C.

You can find out more about their campaign at the U of C Students’ Union website or read the articles in the Calgary Herald and the Calgary Sun.

The University of Lethbridge Students’ Union and the University of Alberta Students’ Union are also taking the initiative to inform their students and the greater community. The U of A Students’ Union is co-hosting a forum tomorrow night with Edmonton’s Next Gen Committee. The event starts at 6:30pm and is at the Myer Horowitz Theatre. The University of Lethbridge Students’ Union is hosting a mayoral forum in Lethbridge on Thursday in the University Hall Atrium at noon.

Regardless of where in Alberta you live, make sure you take the time to get out and vote on October 18!
