2021 Trustee Election: Voting Options & Locations

The next Trustee election for Yellowknife Education District No. 1 (YK1) and Yellowknife Catholic Schools (YCS) is scheduled for October 18, 2021. The poster below outlines voting options and locations for the election, including several opportunities to vote in advance. Seven people will be publicly elected to YK1's Board of Trustees, and seven people will be publicly elected to YCS's Board of Trustees. You can find out who's running for each Board here, and read biographies for candidates who submitted them. Every precaution will be taken at voting locations to ensure everyone's health and safety, and to limit possible introduction and transmission of COVID-19. If possible, we kindly ask that voters limit the amount of people they visit polling stations with, physically distance themselves from others, apply hand sanitizer, and wear a mask upon entering either polling station (YK1 or YCS District Office). Weather permitting, some tables may be placed outside YK1's District Office for periods of the advance vote. Please note that voters can cast ballots for whichever Board they support at either polling station (YK1 supporters can cast votes at EITHER District Office and so can YCS supporters). If you have any questions about the upcoming election, please contact Mona Durkee, Returning Officer, at (867) 445-2111 or yk1ycsro@yk1.nt.ca
