Election Day for the 2019 Alberta election has come and gone.
The Eckville Community Centre had a constant stream of people coming and going throughout the day to cast their votes on April 16.
Polls opened in Eckville, and across the province, at 9 a.m. and remained open until 8 p.m.
Voters took time out of their day to cast their ballots for their candidate of choice, each with their own reason.
“We are an oil field family, so our biggest concern, was making sure that my husband can work and that everything can run smootly that way,” said Christine Oakes.
Another voter, Scott Kinley, also said his choice was economically driven.
“I’m a small business owner and this previous government has had an extreme negative affect on the economy,” said Kinley.
Laurie Wacher said she was also concerned with the “past economic situation in Alberta.”
“[I] really looked at what all of the parties were going to do for Alberta to improve the economy, if at all possible,” Wacher said.
