Moe and Meili encourage Saskatchewan residents to use advance polls this election

Those wanting to cast their ballot in person during the 2020 provincial election can do so starting Tuesday.

The advance polls are open across Saskatchewan from 12:00-8:00 PM every day until Saturday, Oct. 24.

Saskatchewan Party leader Scott Moe is in Saskatoon Tuesday with Saskatoon Riversdale candidate Marv Friesen, who is planning to cast his ballot in the afternoon.

“Elections Saskatchewan is working hard to make sure everyone can vote safely,” Moe said in a news release. “This election, there will be more advance poll locations and advance polls will be open an hour longer each day than in previous elections. This should help ensure the polling places are not crowded, so voters should consider avoiding the rush on Election Day by voting this week at an advance poll.

“This election, we should probably think of it as Election Week rather than Election Day, and Election Week starts today.”

Meanwhile, provincial NDP leader Ryan Meili has an event later Tuesday afternoon, also in Saskatoon to discuss the importance of casting a ballot in this election.

Residents are able to find their regional advance poll location by going to the Elections SK website.
