To Members of Fort McKay First Nation
Chief and Council strongly encourage community members and the staff of Fort McKay First Nation, to have their voice be heard this Federal Election.
The rules have changed as it relates to casting a ballot. The common practice of “vouching” for a person’s identity is no longer allowed under the changes implemented to the Elections Act.
Vouching has been replaced by “swearing an oath” where someone, with photo identification that shows their name and address, swears to the residence of a person. Please note, that
Swearing an Oath can only be done for one person.
If you require a “letter of confirmation” of residence filled out by the band administration, please contact the Reception Desk.
The election will be held on October 19, 2015 at polling stations across the country, and locally at the Fort McKay School, between 7:30 AM – 7:30 PM. Please be sure to bring ID.
