Updated unofficial 2021 Election results

October 20, 2021 4:30 PM
(Red Deer, Alberta)

Following a recount of two voting stations which had not yet reported results, The City has updated unofficial results to reflect 100% of votes cast.

A recount was performed earlier today after an isolated technical issue disrupted results reporting for Advance Vote at the Baymont by Wyndham Red Deer and the Mustard Seed. The recount did not change the outcome of the Election.

Red Deer saw an increase in voter turnout compared to the last Municipal Election. In the 2021 Election, 21,548 out of 71,475 eligible voters, or 30.15 per cent, cast their ballots, including 10,622 during the Advance Vote. This was an increase over 2017, which saw 19,265 of 66,897 eligible voters, or 28.8 per cent, cast their ballots, including 2,639 during Advance Vote.

Unofficial results of the 2021 Municipal and School Board Elections are as follows:
